There is a question for which we will never know the answer: had the U.S. not launched the Contra war to overthrow the Sandinista government, would they have succeeded in bringing socio-economic justice to the people of Nicaragua?

Overview: Nicaragua


If there was something strange and surprising about the canal plans, the same could not be said of Nicaragua’s November 2012 Presidential election, which provided little of either. The victory of the incumbent Daniel Ortega was expected by most Nicaraguans. As the votes were counted, Mr Ortega appeared to have won with a larger margin than the polls had predicted. Early results gave him over 60 per cent of the vote in a field of five candidates. The ruling party, the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), won a comparable share of the vote in the elections to the National Assembly, which meant that Mr Ortega would probably have a majority big enough to allow him to change the constitution if he so wished. Nicaragua’s constitution currently limits presidents to two non-consecutive terms. However, this provision had already been overruled by the Supreme Court.
