Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is now again beginning a fresh upheaval. A country having only 20 years of democracy under its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that exploitation and greed can infiltrate democratic countries as well as dictatorships, and they are starting to speak openly concerning it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and lots of countries were pouring aid into the relatively unfortunate country to retain its democracy. At this point when stresses are starting to rise and the future of democracy appears to be in trouble, several of those same countries have begun scaling back or eliminating all aid to the country, driving it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive regarding the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The fragmentation of the country began in November 2008 following local election and officials started speaking concerning the irregularities happening in the organization. Almost immediately after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua pronounced 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 organization, and have thus begun staging protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are insinuations that they are seeking to limit media access and control the reports going out of the country. All of this, paired with the quickly increasing poverty level of its residents, has made most to think that fighting will break out in the country preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal about their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
