Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been through a recent uprising and the removal of a widely disliked government, Nicaragua is at the present time starting a renewed upheaval. A country having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that dishonesty and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are starting to speak openly regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and lots of nations were providing aid to the relatively unfortunate country to retain its democracy. Now that tensions are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same nations have started scaling back or abolishing completely any aid to the country, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 subsequent to local election and leader started speaking concerning the indiscretions in the organization. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the future 2011 race. Rapidly the population started to doubt the whole governmental system, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the current government, as are suggestions that they are attempting to limit media access and control the information exiting the country. All of this, combined with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to believe that fighting will happen in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
