US Congress acts on concern over Nicaragua

Friday, September 23, 2016

Demonstrating the growing anxiety in Washington about Nicaragua, the U.S. House of Representatives issued a scathing rebuke of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega’s authoritarian push for power.

Democrats and Republicans in the lower chamber unanimously supported a call, led by Miami Republican  Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Wednesday night to restrict the Ortega government’s access to loans from international financial institutions unless it accepts international observers and takes other steps to promote democracy.
