"Nicaraguans were poised to return one-time Sandinista revolutionary Daniel Ortega to the presidency in Sunday's election even with reports of protests and international observers being blocked from participating. Polls closed with international election observers reporting problems with access to voting stations and with one national group of observers, Let's Have Democracy, reporting 600 complaints of voting irregularities, a handful of injuries in protests and 30 arrests."
