Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been through a recent uprising and the removal of a widely disliked government, Nicaragua is currently starting a renewed upheaval. A nation with only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are realizing that dishonesty and greed can infiltrate democratic countries along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to protest concerning it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the new government, and many countries were pouring aid into the fairly unfortunate country to retain its democracy. At this point when strains are beginning to surface and the future of democracy seems to be in trouble, several of those same countries have begun cutting back or stopping all aid to the nation, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly unfriendly towards the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be reluctant to invest in any new business in the region.

The fragmentation of the nation commenced in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began speaking concerning the irregularities happening in the organization. Soon after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, was able to try for re-election in the impending 2011 race. Swiftly the people started to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the present government, as are insinuations that they are attempting to limit media access and regulate the reports exiting the nation. All of this, paired with the rapidly growing poverty level of its inhabitants, has made most to think that fighting will happen in the nation before the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become increasingly verbal concerning their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
