Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a new uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can break into democratic countries along with dictatorships, and they are beginning to protest regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and many countries were pouring aid into the fairly unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. At this time when tensions are beginning to rise and the outlook of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same countries have commenced cutting back or stopping all aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new companies in the region.

The destruction of the nation started in November 2008 subsequent to local election and officials started talking about irregularities happening in the organization. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the future 2011 race. Quickly the people started to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have now started performing protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of eliminating democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to restrict media access and regulate the information exiting the nation. Altogether this, paired with the quickly growing poverty level of its inhabitants, has made most to believe that violence will break out in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal about their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
