The Nicaraguan elections.
On November 6, as expected, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega won re-election by a comfortable margin. He will now embark on his third consecutive term in office and fourth in total, cementing his dominance over the country's political institutions. While the opposition was unable to make electoral headway, it will attempt to unite around claims of an illegal election in an effort to undermine the Ortega administration.
