Special Coverage of the Nicaraguan Elections

Nicaraguans go to the polls to elect a new president to replace Enrique BolaƱos on Sunday November 5, two days before the midterm elections in the United States.

Four major contenders are vying for the presidency: two Sandinistas, former president Daniel Ortega and economist Edmundo Jarquin, and two Liberals, banker Eduardo Montealegre and hacienda owner Jose Rizo.

I will be providing daily election coverage from Managua and several departments from Tuesday October 31 to Monday November 6.

The coverage will include background information on the candidates and their programs, comments from voters, a look at the Nicaraguan media and the campaigns, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate.

If you would like to receive the daily reports for publication or re-circulation let me know and I will put you or your media on the list.
