Nicaraguan Presidential Elections

Daniel Ortega is declared the winner from preliminary counts (40% of ballots counted) with 64% of the vote.  Unfortunately there is no way of knowing what the people wanted. La Prensa and El Nuevo Diario both report widespread fraud and abuse.

Opposition polling officials were barred from many polling places.  Poll watchers from the Organization of American States and the EU were prevented from entering sites.  There are reports of Sandinistas marking extra ballots.  Some polling places closed early with voters standing in line to vote.  Sandinistas were videoed celebrating as they exited polling places to transfer ballots to the Supreme Electoral Council, a Sandinista organization.

This was an absolute mockery of democracy.  Thankfully, there is another Kingdom that is not shaken by this nonsense.

“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  Amen
