 NDI - National Democratic Institute for International Affairs
Nicaragua is locked in an impasse between the country's main political forces, including President Enrique Bolaños, the Liberal Constitutionalist Party (Partido Liberal Constitucionalista, PLC) and the Sandinista National Liberation Front (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, FSLN).
For the 2001 national elections, NDI also trained 450 master political trainers, who in turn trained thousands of fiscales or pollwatchers to monitor the more than 9,500 polling stations in Nicaragua's 17 departments and regions, including the Atlantic Coast.
This crisis has been fueled in part by the absence of public pressure on national leaders to implement political reforms that respond to the needs and expectations of Nicaraguans with their current democratic system.
