, Dec 7 () –
The vice president of Nicaragua, Rosario Murillo, has demanded this Monday that the “coercive” and “illegal” measures be annulled, in reference to the sanctions imposed against the government of her husband, Daniel Ortega, re-elected for his fourth term in those questioned elections held in November in the Central American country.
“The mentality of human beings who are dedicated to strengthening the sense of humanity everywhere is to demand respect for all countries and peoples, for internal and national processes,” Murillo demanded in a statement collected by the Nicaraguan government press.
In this sense, he has lashed out against the “coercive” measures, in reference to the sanctions imposed with the Executive by the international community, and has asserted that “they go against all the international charters that should govern the destinies of the world, in terms of rights. and in terms of coexistence “.
Murillo has criticized that these measures “have nothing to do with goodwill” or “democracy”, but rather “only have to do with selfishness, arrogance and the ambition of the colonial and neocolonial powers to continue dominating and subordinating the world. “
Daniel Ortega and the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) won more than 75 percent of the votes in an election repudiated by the majority of the international community after denouncing waves of arbitrary detentions against critical voices, including seven presidential candidates, as well as journalists, defense lawyers, student leaders and farmers. This situation has led to sanctions by countries like the United States.
