Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a recent uprising and the dismissal of a wildly disliked government, Nicaragua is at the present time beginning a fresh upheaval. A nation having only 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are discovering that corruption and greed can infiltrate democratic nations as well as tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise about it.

After helping overthrow the Sandinistas in open elections in 1991, the U.S. was on sound terms with the latest government, and lots of nations were providing aid to the fairly improvised nation to retain its democracy. At this time when strains are beginning to surface and the outlook of democracy appears to be in jeopardy, several of those same nations have started cutting back or stopping total aid to the nation, pushing it further into destitution. The Nicaraguan government has become increasingly hostile concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. industries are now hesitant to invest in any new business in the nation.

The disintegration of the nation began in November 2008 after local elections were finished and officials began speaking concerning the irregularities happening in the organization. Shortly after that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua ruled that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly disliked by the Nicaraguan people, was able to run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Rapidly the population began to distrust the whole governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and growing rhetoric to new heights.

Allegations of taking away democratic freedoms are being hurled at the present government, as are implication that they are seeking to restrict media access and control the reports going out of the nation. All of this, combined with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has made many to believe that violence will break out in the nation preceding the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become progressively more voiced concerning their displeasure with the state of the government in Nicaragua.
