The regime maintains Reyna Rueda and Enrique Armas as mayor and deputy mayor of Managua for re-election for the second consecutive term, both remaining under the figure of the Secretary General, Fidel Moreno.

The electoral campaign is expected to begin on October 12 and end on November 1, as established by the reform to the Electoral Law approved by the regime that establishes a period of 20 days to carry out the campaign for the municipal elections and the election of councillors.

According to official data, at least 4.4 million citizens will be able to participate in the municipal elections, out of a total of 6.5 million Nicaraguans. In the voting, 153 mayors, 153 deputy mayors, and more than 6,000 councilors from all the country’s municipalities will be “elected.”

The electoral court is accused of executing and directing an “electoral farce” in which the FSLN is expected to gain absolute control of the country’s mayoralties, of which it already dominates 135, after eliminating in 2021 all traces of opposition with the cancellation of three political parties that would bring together the groups that criticize the Ortega-Murillo administration.
