Fury Swells in Nicaragua as Election Time Nears

Having just been effected by a fresh uprising and the removal of a wildly disliked rule, Nicaragua is currently starting a new upheaval. A nation having just 20 years of democracy below its belt, Nicaraguans are learning that corruption and greed can infiltrate democratic nations along with tyrannies, and they are beginning to make noise regarding it.

After helping defeat the Sandinistas in free elections in 1991, the U.S. was on good terms with the latest government, and lots of nations were pouring aid into the relatively poor country to keep its democracy alive. At this point when strains are beginning to surface and the future of democracy looks to be in jeopardy, lots of those same nations have started scaling back or eliminating completely any aid to the nation, pushing it further into poverty. The Nicaraguan government has started being aggressive concerning the U.S. government, and U.S. businesses are beginning to be unwilling to invest in any new companies in the region.

The fragmentation of the nation commenced in November 2008 following local election and officials began speaking about irregularities in the system. Soon following that, the Supreme Court of Nicaragua decided that its former leader, Daniel Ortega, wildly unpopular with the Nicaraguan people, could run for re-election in the upcoming 2011 race. Swiftly the population began to doubt the whole governmental organization, and have now begun performing protests and fostering rhetoric to new pinnacles.

Charges of removing democratic freedoms are being thrown at the existing government, as are implication that they are attempting to limit media access and control the information leaving the nation. Altogether this, paired with the rapidly growing poverty level of its residents, has led most to think that fighting will break out in the nation prior to the 2011 elections. Opposition groups and human rights organizations have become gradually more vocal regarding their disapproval with the condition of the government in Nicaragua.
