Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the removal of a wildly unpopular rule, Nicaragua is currently beginning a new upheaval. A country with only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can break into democratic countries as well as dictatorships, and they are starting to protest 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 countries were offering aid to the relatively unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. Now that strains are starting to surface and the prospect of democracy appears to be in trouble, lots of those same countries have commenced cutting back or eliminating total aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began speaking concerning the irregularities going on in the system. Shortly following 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. Rapidly the population started to be suspicious of the whole governmental system, and have now begun staging protests and growing rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the current government, as are suggestions that they are trying to limit media access and control the information exiting the country. Altogether this, paired with the quickly mounting poverty level of its residents, has made many to think that fighting will happen in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal about their anger with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
