Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been through a recent uprising and the dismissal of a widely hated government, Nicaragua is at the present time starting a new upheaval. A nation with just 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that corruption and greed can penetrate democratic nations in addition to dictatorships, and they are starting to speak openly concerning it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and many nations were providing aid to the fairly improvised country to retain its democracy. At this point when strains are starting to increase and the future of democracy looks to be in danger, several of those same nations have started cutting back or eliminating all aid to the nation, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being hostile regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new business in the nation.

The disintegration of the nation started in November 2008 subsequent to local election and officials started talking concerning the misdeeds in the organization. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Rapidly the population started to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have thus begun performing protests and raising rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and regulate the news leaving the nation. All of this, paired with the swiftly increasing poverty level of its citizens, has led several to think that fighting will happen in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more verbal about their disapproval with the status of the government in Nicaragua.
