Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a new revolution and the dismissal of a widely unpopular government, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A country having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that corruption and greed can infiltrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are beginning 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 many countries were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when tensions are beginning to increase and the future of democracy looks to be in trouble, lots of those same countries have started cutting back or eliminating all 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 country.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 following local election and leader began speaking concerning the indiscretions going on in the organization. Almost immediately following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the people began to be suspicious of the whole governmental organization, and have thus begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the existing government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to impede media access and control the news going out of the country. All of this, shared with the rapidly growing poverty level of its citizens, has led most to think that fighting will break out in the country before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly voiced about their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
