Impending Elections in Nicaragua Stir the Pot

Having just been effected by a fresh revolution and the removal of a wildly disliked government, Nicaragua is currently creating a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic nations along with dictatorships, and they are beginning to protest about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the new government, and many nations were providing aid to the relatively unfortunate nation to retain its democracy. At this time when strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in danger, several of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping completely any aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new business in the region.

The fragmentation of the nation commenced in November 2008 subsequent to local election and officials began talking about indiscretions in the system. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Quickly the people began to doubt the entire governmental organization, and have now started staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Accusations of taking away democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are implication that they are attempting to restrict media access and control the news exiting the nation. Altogether this, shared with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to think that violence will happen in the nation preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly vocal regarding their disapproval with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
