Margarita R. Seminario sits down with Dr. Jennie K. Lincoln, a Senior Advisor for Latin America and the Caribbean at The Carter Center on peace initiatives, to discuss the deterioration of democracy, human rights, and governance in Nicaragua under the Ortega regime. They cover the lack of conditions for elections in November, the challenges faced by voters and candidates, the Ortega regime’s systematic actions against opposition presidential contenders, and need for the international community to act in a determined and coordinated manner.

Since the podcast was recorded on June 7th, two more presidential candidates have been detained and imprisoned and multiple opposition voices brutally silenced.
