The army will be present at Sunday’selections to defend Nicaragua againstany unexpected outbreaks of democracy.

The Supreme Electoral Council (CSE) reports that it has completed the transfer of ballots and other electoral material to the 419 voting stations in the municipalities of the North and South Atlantic Autonomous Regions (RAAN and RAAS, respectively). On March 2, some 300,000 registered voters in the RAAN and RAAS will go to the polls to elect — or try to elect— their next regional authorities.
