The protests in Nicaragua have Phone Number List eroded the alliance between the government, big business and the churches. Meanwhile, the repression encouraged by Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo increases and the November 2021 elections are far from competitive. The forces opposed to the regime are disintegrated and the arrests of potential candidates have become Phone Number List daily. The price of Daniel Ortega's perpetuation Tomás was a founding guerrilla of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) and a member of its national leadership during the government that followed the Nicaraguan Revolution (1979-1990). Before his death in 2012, and after the return Phone Number List of the FSLN to power through elections six years earlier, he said about the politics of the Central American country: " Anything can happen here, unless the Sandinista Front loses power inconceivable the possibility of the return of the right in this country.
I told Daniel Ortega: 'Man, we can pay Phone Number List any price, whatever they say, the only thing we cannot do is lose power.' Whatever they say, let's do what we have to do, the highest price would be losing power. There will be a Sandinista Front today, tomorrow and forever." The interview helps to understand two things. First, the nature of the Phone Number List Ortega regime since 2007, which has been determined to co-opt (and when necessary, dismantle) the democratic institutions of the country, and which has also been willing to empty the ideological content of the FSLN, abandoning the promise of redistribution of wealth and social progressivism in order to Phone Number List seize and preserve power.
In other words, Ortega has preferred to Phone Number List turn the FSLN into a right-wing force rather than allow the return of "the right." For more than a decade, this mentality has allowed the Ortega family - he is president and his wife Rosario Murillo, the Phone Number List vice president - to build a strong authoritarian consensus in Nicaragua, with the tacit support of former "counterrevolutionary" enemies of the 80's But in 2018 an explosion of popular outrage – as well as the bloody repression that followed – shattered the authoritarian consensus and Phone Number List unbalanced the regime.
