The Daniel Ortega regime is, at first, a problem not only for the Nicaraguans, but also for the United States’ neighbors and other countries because of the damage it causes. This is what former Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla believes, who sees A bad example for the Ortega region. “If Daniel’s actions go unpunished and he gets rid of it, it will be a call for other rulers and other leaders to follow the same path.“, He says in conversation Infobe.
On November 7, Daniel Ortega was re-elected for a fifth and fourth consecutive term in elections, considered by both the Nicaraguan opposition and large sections of the international community. A mockery of the lack of minimum conditions of competitiveness, transparency and freedom.
Until now, More than 40 countries have publicly declared that they will not recognize elections as legal This led to the re-election of Ortega and his wife Rosario Murillo. On the other hand, Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Russia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and North Korea are the governments that have congratulated Ortega on “his victory.”
Nicaragua is facing the worst crisis in its history. It has been under a practical siege since 2018, with more than 300 people killed under ongoing police and paramilitary repression. 160 political prisoners, About 100,000 were deported and at least three media outlets were militarily shut down. Past elections have exacerbated the crisis by failing to act as a relief, as the Ortega regime monitored the election, disbanded the independent press, and imprisoned potential rival candidates.
Crisis in Nicaragua for Chinchilla It will negatively affect Central American countries and “affect other countries in the hemisphere”. In four areas: one, Economy, Because “20 percent of Central America’s trade is within regions” and “the instability and conflicts that a regime like Daniel Ortega brings to its neighbors may affect emergency efforts for economic recovery in the understanding that Central America is an economic community.”
Another impact, says the former Costa Rican president Humane social. “Since the crisis began in April 2018, more than 100,000 Nicaraguans have left Nicaragua and 8 out of 10 have come to Costa Rica, but in recent months more and more Nicaraguans want to move north because Costa Rica’s economy is absorbing less labor due to the effects of epidemics.”
The remaining two areas, according to Chinchilla, “Security balance“, Given Arms competition In this, Daniel Ortega, in collaboration with Russia, is going to create hatred that will sooner or later escalate existing tensions ”, and “Democracy”, In that region “As a result of the populist leadership it is weakening, less and less engrossed with the most dishonest, democratic beliefs, trying to come to power and, once there, concentrates all powers without leaving it again.
This Tuesday, the Salvador government is taking the lead Naib B Watch, In his country’s legislature, he introduced a draft law on foreign agents, which some analysts consider similar. “Foreign Agents Act” Ortega uses it to persecute and imprison enemies. Both Bukhel and Ortega defended the law and said it “Equal in America.”
To Nicaraguan political scientist Manuel Orosco, the initiative of the inter-American dialogue analyst Buhgel was “the epidemic effect of regimes, as soon as standards are lowered, other countries are doing the same.”
Orosco considers Ortega’s regime to be “another authoritarian regime in the region with the lowest indicators of dictatorships and the rule of law, anti-corruption, political participation and equality development.”
Tell me what Nicaragua maintains its relationship with regional countries on a transactional basis. “Guatemala, for example, pledges its support to its Secretary of State to be elected to the SEGIB (Ibero-American General Secretariat) in exchange for not being convicted in the OAS. Promised.
Like Chinchilla, Orosko claims Ortega rule “It will have an instability effect because its economic performance will affect the region Due to the decline in inter-regional trade and the increase in immigration, which will increase to two percent of the country’s population by 2021.
According to Bolivian politician and analyst Carlos Sanchez Persine, the Ortega regime is part of an event to which he gives his name and surname. “This is called Castro-chauvinism or 21st century socialism., He says. “This is a process that originated in Venezuela’s oil money in 1999, when there was only one dictatorship, Cuba. Now there are four dictatorships: Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and Bolivia.”
He asserts that it is wrong to separate one dictatorship from another, saying “this is a process and the same mechanism as the Cuba G2 Sao Paulo forum.”
“They are classified as political prisoners, political deportees and because they use justice to persecute their opponents. They have no story anymore. No one believed in the Cuban Revolution or the Sandinista Revolution“, Dice.
Laura Chinchilla wants to indicate which countries are following in Ortega’s footsteps, but invites us to review the statements of the Democratic Index, which read: They are in the same direction that Daniel Ortega started walking 15 years ago: Attempts to weaken the rule of law, affect the judicial independence of judges and lawyers, reform the constitution to be re-elected and attempt to co-operate with the Electoral Commission, ultimately culminate in the process of regulating democratic institutions.”.
However, he says the problem starts when the people give power to these populist leaders. “Not only are they handing over power to him, they are joking and applauding what the rulers are starting to do. This is part of that Cadilista policy in which they believe that a kind of Superman will come to save them from all their misfortunes.
It recognizes that the response of the international community to stop these dictatorial regimes is not enough. “We face the challenge of adjusting those international and regional mechanisms to prevent the degeneration of democracy. We became accustomed to coups and riots, and it was very easy to react. We do not know now how the process of degeneration will be gradual and when it will come out of the hands of those who wield power.
