Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a new uprising and the removal of a widely disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently beginning a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and lots of nations were offering aid to the relatively unfortunate country to retain its democracy. Now that strains are beginning to surface and the prospect of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, several of those same nations have begun scaling back or eliminating all aid to the nation, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The fragmentation of the nation commenced in November 2008 following local election and leader began talking about irregularities going on in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the people began to distrust the whole governmental structure, and have now started staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are attempting to limit media access and regulate the news going out of the nation. Altogether this, paired with the quickly growing poverty level of its citizens, has led most to believe that fighting will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more vocal concerning their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
