The Organization of American States (OAS) and the government of Nicaragua agreed to implement a forum of dialogue on the disputed electoral process that will take place in the Central American country.
In a brief official statement, the OAS declared that secretary general of the organization Luis Almagro sent a report to Nicaraguan authorities about the facts in the controversial electoral process.
According to the OAS, the government of Managua received that report and it is willing to work with a committe to “jointly analyze related issues.”
Based on that, the Secretary General of the OAS and the Government of Nicaragua will implement a conversation and exchange mechanism for this purpose,
stated the note.
Nicaragua plans to conduct presidential elections on November 6th. They will also allow to choose 90 legislators to the National Assembly and 20 legislators to the Central American Parliament.
The main opposition groups will not participate in the elections due to a court ruling that didn’t allow the representation of Partido Liberal Independiente (PLI), which aimed to lead an electoral alliance.
The Nicaraguan electoral process, which sectors of the opposition called a “farce”, also made tense relations between Washington and Managua, after two decades of relatively peaceful contact.
The US Congress even passed a law on conditionality of investments in Nicaragua until the government of Managua promotes elections supervised by outside observers.
