Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a wildly hated rule, Nicaragua is currently creating a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to protest about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and many nations were pouring aid into the relatively improvised country to keep its democracy alive. Now that strains are beginning to surface and the future of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, many of those same nations have begun scaling back or stopping all aid to the nation, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The fragmentation of the nation commenced in November 2008 subsequent to local election and leader began talking about indiscretions going on in the system. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Quickly the population started to distrust the entire governmental structure, and have now started staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are implication that they are trying to impede media access and control the news going out of the nation. Altogether this, paired with the quickly increasing poverty level of its citizens, has made most to feel certain that fighting will break out in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more vocal concerning their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
