Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a recent revolution and the removal of a widely unpopular government, Nicaragua is currently beginning a new upheaval. A nation having only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that dishonesty and greed can penetrate democratic nations as well as dictatorships, and they are starting to make noise regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and several nations were pouring aid into the fairly unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. At this point when tensions are starting to rise and the future of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, lots of those same nations have started cutting back or eliminating all aid to the nation, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being unfriendly towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be hesitant to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began talking about indiscretions in the system. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the people began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have now started staging protests and growing rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the current government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to limit media access and regulate the reports leaving the nation. Altogether this, paired with the quickly mounting poverty level of its residents, has led most to think that violence will break out in the nation preceding 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.
