Nicaragua: Regime Prosecutor Moves to Save Ortega from Defeat

Source: US News & World Report

“The Nicaraguan Prosecutor’s Office on Tuesday accused presidential opposition candidate Cristiana Chamorro of abusive management and ideological falsehood, and requested her disqualification. Chamorro is the daughter of former President Violeta Barrios de Chamorro, who defeated President Daniel Ortega in the 1990 elections. She has more support than any other opposition candidate, according to a Cid-Gallup poll. Neither Chamorro nor her lawyers immediately responded to a request for comment. Ortega is seeking re-election for a third consecutive term in November. … The electoral body has already eliminated two opposition parties.” (06/01/21)
