Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been through a new uprising and the dismissal of a widely unpopular government, Nicaragua is currently creating a new upheaval. A country 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 beginning to protest regarding it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and lots of nations were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. Now that strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, many of those same nations have begun cutting back or abolishing all aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly unfriendly concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now hesitant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The destruction of the country began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began talking about indiscretions in the system. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the future 2011 race. Rapidly the population began to doubt the entire governmental organization, and have now begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being thrown at the existing government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to restrict media access and regulate the news going out of the country. Altogether this, combined with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its inhabitants, has made most to believe that fighting will ensue in the country prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly voiced concerning their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
