Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a renewed upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are starting to make noise concerning it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and lots of nations were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when strains are starting to surface and the outlook of democracy seems to be in jeopardy, several of those same nations have started cutting back or eliminating all aid to the country, forcing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new business in the region.

The disintegration of the country began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking concerning the misdeeds in the organization. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the population began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have now begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and regulate the news exiting the country. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly increasing poverty level of its inhabitants, has made most to believe that violence will happen in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal concerning their displeasure with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
