Democratic Setbacks in Nicaragua

Ensayos

The last time I spoke at this kind of forum in Washington, in June 2009, I talked about the political crisis that had worsened in Nicaragua following the electoral fraud in the 2008 municipal elections. I probably did not sound very optimistic, but at least there was still hope that combined pressure from civil society and the legislative opposition could help guarantee clean elections in 2011.
