Nicaraguan Elections Breed Anger and Distrust

Having just been through a fresh revolution and the removal of a wildly hated rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A nation having merely 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that exploitation and greed can penetrate democratic nations in addition to tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and many nations were providing aid to the fairly unfortunate country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when stresses are beginning to increase and the prospect of democracy looks to be in trouble, many of those same nations have started cutting back or abolishing all aid to the nation, forcing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly unfriendly concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are now unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The fragmentation of the nation began in November 2008 subsequent to local election and leader started talking concerning the indiscretions going on in the system. Shortly following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided 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 whole governmental system, and have now started performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Accusations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are implication that they are attempting to limit media access and control the information exiting the nation. Altogether this, combined with the quickly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to believe that violence will happen in the nation preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more verbal regarding their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
