(Prensa Latina) The Nicaraguan Episcopal Conference called the citizens of this Central American country to vote in peace in the general elections in November and avoid everything bringing a threat for physical and moral integrity of people.

In a message containing several Biblic passages, the Nicaraguan bishops stated that the vote is a right, and the decision to do so or not, must be taken by every citizen from the inside of their own conscience.

‘A Catholic must decide if he is collaborating to the construction of a fairer society with his or her vote, favoring the common good for the entire population,’ the message expressed.

Also, the message warns that in moments of crisis and tension, it is easy to yield to the temptation for violence, but this one never solves the conflicts. ‘We exhort all the Nicaraguans to act pacifically, respecting the legitimate options of every person and preventing all that from threatening the physical and moral integrity of the others,’ the message underlines.

The message invites all the faithful souls to pray for the present and the future of Nicaragua. It was announced by the president of the Episcopal Conference, Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes, and the secretary, and spokesman, monsignor Jorge Solórzano.

The campaign for the general election to be realized on November 6 began in an official way this Saturday, in which the alliance headed by the National Sandinista Liberation Front (FSLN), supported as favorite.

Both Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo, both candidates of the FSLN for the presidency and vicepresidency, respectively, are provided with a wide popular support, according to the most recent study of opinion by M&R Consultant.
