An opposing faction will seek to build a great alliance to confront Ortega

Managua, Jan 13 (EFE) .- A party and an opposition movement in Nicaragua agreed on Wednesday to start a joint effort to build a great alliance in order to confront the current president, Sandinista Daniel Ortega, in the general elections scheduled for 7 next November. In a six-point agreement, the Citizens for Freedom (CxL) party and the Civic Alliance for Justice and Democracy advocated for a “broad and inclusive opposition coalition that unites citizens, organizations and sectors around a government proposal with vision of nation for the common good of the country “. The idea of ​​that coalition, they added, is “to allow us to move from the current dictatorship to a truly democratic Nicaragua, where justice reigns, and Nicaraguan families can prosper in freedom.” “To achieve the establishment of a new democratic government through free elections, it is necessary to establish a broad and inclusive opposition alliance that leads and mobilizes Nicaraguans, generates enthusiasm and confidence in a better future and connects with their feelings and aspirations,” said José Dávila, leader of the Civic Alliance, when reading the six points. ELECTORAL REFORMS In the joint statement, the organizations reaffirmed the need for “free, fair and transparent elections as the only comprehensive and lasting solution to the political, economic and social crisis that Nicaragua is experiencing” since April 2018. Therefore, they committed to ” join efforts to demand the implementation of the necessary electoral reforms “to return” the right to choose freely, “whose” guidelines are contained in the resolution approved on October 21 of last year at the General Assembly of the OAS (Organization of American States ) “. They also appealed “to all civic organizations and democratic political parties so that we all demand that the (Ortega) regime address the electoral reforms proposed by the OAS.” In addition, join efforts for the full restitution of the citizenship rights of all Nicaraguans, including the release of the so-called “political prisoners”, support for their families and the “cessation of repression of members of the opposition, and the repeal of all recently passed laws that violate citizen rights. ” THERE ARE THREE OPPOSING BLOCKS The Civic Alliance, without legal personality, was initially created by the Episcopal Conference of Nicaragua to be the Government’s counterpart in a national dialogue to seek a peaceful solution to the crisis that the country has been experiencing since April 2018, and to the that belong to representatives of the two main bosses’ leadership and student leaders. The Civic Alliance announced last October its withdrawal from the opposition National Coalition, also without legal personality and that it was called during its installation to be the great political force that faces the Sandinistas in the next elections. Meanwhile, CxL is made up mostly of dissident liberals, former members of the National Coalition for Democracy, which before the 2016 elections was the main opposition group in Nicaragua. CxL has been criticized by other sectors of the opposition for having participated together with the ruling Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) in the elections of the autonomous regions of the Caribbean in 2018, amid the crisis that left hundreds of deaths, detainees and tens of thousands in exile. Meanwhile, the current National Coalition is made up of the Democratic Restoration Party (PRD), the indigenous Yatama (“Children of Mother Earth” in the Miskito language), and the organizations Fuerza Democrática Nicaragüense (FDN), Unidad Nacional Azul y Blanco, and Campesino Movement. That group decided to separate from its bosom the Liberal Constitutionalist Party (PLC), of former Nicaraguan president Arnoldo Alemán (1997-2002), because that group is going through an internal crisis and has allowed the Supreme Electoral Council, controlled by the Sandinistas, to decide your luck. Opponents are looking to defeat the Sandinistas, led by Ortega, 75, who on Monday celebrated 14 consecutive years in his second stage as president of Nicaragua, after coordinating a Governing Board from 1979 to 1985, and presiding for the first time the country from 1985 to 1990.
