9:10 pm
been the tyrant among them and what they want there had, there are hundreds and hundreds of nicaraguan exiles who are here. you can see some of them behind me. it's been raining a lot. so some have taken a bit of cover. but they are here from the border areas. we're talking about nicaraguan farmers. people are politicians from coming to it would be gone into exile and neighboring costa rica more recently. and others who left the country 3 years ago when a, an uprising against president ortega began, they are all united in their call for the president ortega to step down or at the very least hold would, they would regard and what most international human rights and political groups would consider free and fair elections. why do i say this? because the opposition candidates? certainly the competitive opposition candidates have all been barred from running
9:11 pm
at least 7 of them are imprisoned, in fact, and others have gone into exile or again, borrowed from running. this means that president, daniel ortega, is virtually running unopposed. there have been a long standing complaints about his authoritarian form of government in nicaragua . but now many people, especially the ones here, say that they want their voices to be heard at least outside of nicaragua. because inside of nicaragua, the opposition media, for example, and critics of the, i mean, cannot express themselves, which is why they say they're doing it here. and the reason why we're here also is because the government, the president ortega, has bar to international journalist from covering this event as well. thank you very much for that. update our latin american, the editor, lucy newman. let's get some analysis now and bring in to the anna right. he's a central america analyst at international crisis group and joins is from a what a mile as city. thanks for joining us to the honor. we've just heard from our correspondent about protest in raleigh in costa rica. do you think these opposition
9:12 pm
voices will make a difference, or is this election just to sham? well, thanks. so 1st of all, for inviting me, emily. it's a pleasure. that's one of the greatest problem indigo actually explains the situation does not only is a combination. i mean, there's a combination basically not only undertake correct down all new position, but the position of the back to police state defect to be heading over all the electrons are known to proceed as electro turn. it is so far, but also on the other side, you have this opposition movements which are incomplete, these array and over the past few years and not managed to nurture. while the spirits of the age 2018 mass protest movements and not prioritizing demands of social and political change, that these movements brought forward,
9:13 pm
which is also somehow these illusions and received a lot of nicaraguans. so he will, but the selection would not be only for take it to see how many people will actually show up to vote for him. but also for the, for the opposition movements that actually show if they still have a way over the population. what are some of the ramifications on the country and citizens if ortega continues to be president? well, this, the country's social political crisis is actually on sustainable. any does lead to prompted a strong economic recession over the bus fee is just badly recovering this year. but mostly, thanks to global trend in economy and a lot of resources being funneled through the correct one or more years of government that actually results from basically one sided pull will likely result.
9:14 pm
first of all, the lack of the legitimacy that has internally and internationally. it will definitely change the way for our investment and will get a hold of international loans. so the combination of these sort of continues or deepen isolation to nationally and regression and certainly will definitely 1st of all. busy from more and more new car wants to leave the country and not only to costa rica, which was a traditional mission on country, but increasing the also to the us ortega in see if he's a victim of a campaign funded by the u. s. to topple his government, what's your reaction to those claim? well, this is actually the way in which has been able to maintain a coal support. i'm on the is, is the ranks basically the coal support that has the basis of the party, which are highly intelligent and very radical. remained around
9:15 pm
20 to 30 percent of the population. no pulse, basically from the international community action strategy as well through the position of sanctions, cumulative use of sanctions throughout the years as basically eventually reinforced these, these cars from ortega, which definitely doesn't match the reality of the country, but has been as and allowed him to maintain as to basically justify is actions internally, at least while we appreciate your insights, more watched with interest over the coming days and weights. thank you to the honor bright from the international crisis group. thank you. thanks and have a nice say plenty more head on this news our including will have more on why gas is main power plant is under threat of shack. down. libby is electoral commission
