Open Polls: OAS resolution “is insufficient” to put pressure on Ortega

The independent observatory Urnas Abiertas pointed out that the recent resolution on Nicaragua, approved at the 53rd General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), “is an important message from the international community but it continues to be insufficient.”

He refers that although the resolution is important, if “forceful measures against the dictatorial regime” are not taken, everything will be insufficient to get out of the crisis that the country is experiencing.

He stressed that it is necessary for the international community “to take bilateral or multilateral measures in relation to investment and development projects that international financial institutions continue to finance in the country.”

He also indicated that it is necessary to review everything related to trade agreements, execution of reliable audits, financing conditions, as well as the use of the nine instruments incorporated in the Renacer Law, among other measures within the international legal framework.

The resolution entitled “The Human Rights Crisis in Nicaragua”, unanimously approved by the 32 representatives of States present, urges the Ortega regime to cease “all human rights violations and respect the civil, political and religious rights of the Nicaraguans”.

In addition, it calls on him to cease the persecution against journalists, the media, civil society organizations, and religious communities, respecting the right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.

The draft was submitted by Canada and went through several reviews by representatives of member countries. It also had co-sponsoring States such as the United States, Antigua and Barbuda, Chile and Costa Rica.

Urnas Abiertas affirmed that it is “important that the international community continue to demand that the Nicaraguan regime cease the violations of Human Rights and the release of the 64 political prisoners, including Monsignor Rolando Álvarez.”

The resolution comes five months after Nicaragua’s departure from the OAS became effective after the Ortega y Murillo regime denounced the charter in November 2021.
