Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again starting a new upheaval. A country having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that corruption and greed can infiltrate democratic countries as well as dictatorships, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and many countries were providing aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. Now that tensions are beginning to rise and the outlook of democracy seems to be in jeopardy, many of those same countries have started scaling back or eliminating completely any aid to the country, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new business in the nation.

The fragmentation of the country started in November 2008 following local election and leader started talking concerning the irregularities happening in the organization. Almost immediately following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Swiftly the population started to distrust the whole governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are seeking to impede media access and regulate the news exiting the country. All of this, paired with the quickly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to think that fighting will happen in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly voiced regarding their anger with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
