Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a fresh uprising and the removal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that dishonesty and greed can penetrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise concerning it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and lots of countries were providing aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. Now that strains are beginning to increase and the future of democracy looks to be in trouble, many of those same countries have begun cutting back or eliminating completely any aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the region.

The disintegration of the nation commenced in November 2008 subsequent to local election and officials began speaking about indiscretions happening in the organization. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the population started to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have now started staging protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are insinuations that they are trying to impede media access and regulate the information leaving the nation. Altogether this, shared with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its residents, has led many to think that fighting will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal concerning their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
