Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a fresh uprising and the dismissal of a widely unpopular rule, Nicaragua is currently creating a new upheaval. A nation with merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are beginning to protest about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and several nations were pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. Now that strains are beginning to rise and the future of democracy seems to be in danger, several of those same nations have started scaling back or stopping completely any aid to the nation, forcing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The destruction of the nation began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking concerning the indiscretions in the organization. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the people began to distrust the whole governmental structure, and have now begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

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 news going out of the nation. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to think that fighting will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly voiced about their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
