Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent revolution and the removal of a widely disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A country with just 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that dishonesty and greed can break into democratic countries in addition to tyrannies, and they are beginning to protest regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and several countries were providing aid to the fairly poor nation to keep its democracy alive. At this time when tensions are beginning to surface and the future of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, several of those same countries have begun cutting back or stopping total aid to the country, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now reluctant to invest in any new business in the region.

The disintegration of the country commenced in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking about indiscretions in the organization. Soon after 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 population began to distrust the entire governmental organization, and have now started staging protests and raising rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the existing government, as are insinuations that they are trying to limit media access and regulate the information going out of the country. All of this, combined with the swiftly increasing poverty level of its citizens, has led many to believe that fighting will break out in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more vocal about their disapproval with the status of the government in Nicaragua.
