Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the removal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a fresh upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that dishonesty and greed can penetrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are starting to protest about it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and lots of countries were offering aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to keep its democracy alive. At this point when stresses are starting to surface and the future of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, several of those same countries have started cutting back or abolishing total aid to the nation, driving it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile towards the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the nation.

The fragmentation of the nation started in November 2008 after local elections were finished and leader began talking concerning the irregularities going on in the organization. Almost immediately following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the people began to doubt the entire governmental structure, and have thus begun staging protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of taking away democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to limit media access and regulate the reports going out of the nation. Altogether this, shared with the rapidly mounting poverty level of its citizens, has made several to believe that fighting will break out in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal regarding their anger with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
