The Nicaraguan government emphatically condemned today the isolated actions of violence that took place in the country around the municipal elections, in spite of the constant calls for peace from the authorities.

In a statement, the Government of Reconciliation and National Unity notes that ‘despite the insistent calls of the high religious authorities, and our President, vice president, and local authorities, there were violent events and loss of lives, which confirm that it is necessary to work the conscience of concord ‘.

Reconciliation and peace, which in the majority of Nicaraguans has been reinforced, although there are still those who irresponsibly break with those purposes that we are extending as a reality in a large part of the Homeland, he adds.

Likewise, the Sandinista government stresses that it supports the actions of public order institutions, and in particular the outstanding work of the National Police, which contributed to reducing these actions of violence in specific areas of the country.

‘Our solidarity with the affected families, who live the pain of their losses, and our call to continue developing reconciliation and peace, which makes us live safe, and working to prosper,’ he concludes.
