The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) has initiated a 75-day countdown for the Ortega-Murillo regime to negotiate a solution to Nicaragua’s sociopolitical crisis with the “high-level commission” approved on Wednesday, with 21 votes in favor, in Washington.

Permanent Council approves “high-level commission” to negotiate solution to sociopolitical crisis

If the effort fails, Nicaragua could be permanently expelled from the inter-American organization, while the Ortega administration rejects commission and insists on unilateral electoral reform with the OAS, something the General Secretariat does not envision, reports Confidencial.

The plenary of the Permanent Council approved the composition of the “high-level commission” and its members after this diplomatic tool was mandated by the General Assembly of the OAS, last June in Medellin, Colombia.
