September 13, 2017
The conditions under which the electoral process is carried out shows evidence of violation of the electoral law and the concentration of power of the ruling party. This allows the FSLN unbridled abuse of state resources and makes the process -and particularly the electoral campaign- unequal, unfair and disadvantageous competition for the rest of the political forces. In addition, the municipal electoral councils in 20% of the municipalities aren’t functioning for voters due to lack of citizen services.
