government party members are going house for house, trying to get people to sign pledges that they will vote in the field, that they will go to the polls and that they will actually vote for president daniel ortega. we also know that the opposition has called, at least on their social network, because opposition media has been shut down. we are all going to stay home and boy caught that pole while here in costa rica. many nicaragua are planning to go out on the streets. they say to have the voice that the problem don't have in their own country. it has been a very, very contested election. as you mentioned, most of the outspoken opponents of the government have been imprisoned or gone into exile as other candidates have also been barred from running. so there is virtually no competition in this election. and this isn't the 1st time this is happened, but this is the 1st time the president ortega has done so far as to actually prevent real competitive opponents from reading. let's take
12:33 am
a look at how we have managed to do this time and time again to remain in office for more than 14 years. it was wrong ago, 1979. when, when lucian, in nicaragua, over to the countries then diagnostic dictatorship. when one of the revolutions leaders was daniel ortega, he went on to become president, amid a bloody counter revolutionary war financed by the united states. the conflict ended with a new election in which would take a last. he promised to return and he did own bath. this time to stay 14 years after returning to the presidency than usual, data is going for a 4th consecutive and contested term. it is from exiled human rights advocate. gonzalez, guardian explains how he achieves it through absolute concentration of power. he made a pact with the church, the business sector, and some opposition parties,
12:34 am
his former enemies, and ended up controlling alby institutions, including the supreme court and the electoral council. therefore, after returning in january 2007, he swore in the armed forces and police reminding them of their routes that they were sandinista party institutions. but 3 years ago or take us alliances began crumbling when mass protests led by students turned into a national uprising and cause for the restoration of democratic institutions. even his want, staunchest allies had declared him a dictator and demanded he stepped down. he refused saying his adversaries would have to settle their differences peacefully at the ballot box, but to wait hasn't been peaceful. this exhibition in costa rica national assembly is a tribute to some of the more than 300 nicaraguans who were killed by ortega, security forces and paramilitary groups in less than 2 months. they include student
12:35 am
shop owners, farmers even children, and they become a symbol of the government's determination to crush descent. but they aren't the only symbol. this is a replica of what they call a punishment cell, where hundreds of political prisoners in nicaragua are taken sometimes for weeks even months. that includes the majority of the mainstream wouldn't be opposition candidate for sundays. presidential election. ortega claims the united states and certain european countries are instigating on rest earlier this month. he boasted support not just from cuba and venezuela, but also russia. a lot of them boom. but in the loop of it is offered us in valuable support in the area of defense to defend peace now country. so thank you, president vladimir putin, our respects and affection. we are together in the struggle for peace and sovereignty and justice of our country's leper. a recent gallup poll among others,
12:36 am
suggests ortega has less than 20 percent support. but he continues to receive financial aid from the i m f. the inter american development bank and the central american bank and has been able to enlarge the paramilitary and police forces in nicaragua, the 2nd poor's country in the region that has allowed him to stay in power through terror and guns for the last 3 years. there has been systematic repression and crimes against humanity. ortega's closest advisors are other ortega's, including his children, who run a multi media empire and large family business holdings. the national chief of police is his in law, and then there's his powerful wife and vice president rosario moody. you. meanwhile, opposition television print, an online outlets like confidential had been rated and confiscated, and mainstream political parties declared illegal with good reason. ortega is
12:37 am
confident that he will remain in the presidency, at least for the foreseeable future. what, apart from very strong to allies, there will be no independent observance during this selection. and that includes journalists, in fact, the reason why i'm here in san jose costa rica and not in nicaragua capital is that for the 1st time ever, the nickel robin government has decided that foreign journalist cannot into the country. this is absolutely unprecedented. never happened before in nicaragua, nor in cuba, or even the whaler when there are elections. but that is the situation right now. however, there are journalists in nicaragua, many of them working underground, who are going to be sending information all the time here to costa rica and to other parts of the world to try to keep people informed back to you via newman, with religious from costa rica as you mentioned thank you. gangs in
