Nicaragua has made a huge mistake not having independent international election observers monitor and certify their recent mayoral elections. They have fallen right into the trap of those who want to use the news coming out of Nicaragua to discredit all egalitarian movements. It plays right into the hands of CIA propagandists and the mainstream more fascist-leaning media in the U.S. who will spin this completely against egalitarianism.
Perhaps as the news unfolds, we will learn that there were monitors in place. I hope so.
