“The events of the last 24 hours give even more evidence of that. Denying the opportunity to different people to participate in elections, reducing the space to have free and safe elections, reducing the space for different voices to be heard, that goes in a totally opposite direction,” said the head of US diplomacy, during his visit to Costa Rica that ended Wednesday afternoon.

“Know what? I listen to the statements that government officials have given about all the achievements that they say they have obtained on behalf of the Nicaraguan people. Well, given that you would think that they would welcome the judgment of the people in free and fair elections. And apparently, they don’t,” Blinken said in an interview with La Nacion.

The Nicaraguan Police raided Chamorro’s home on Wednesday with a strong operation and, on Tuesday, the Public Ministry asked that he be prohibited from holding public office, thus blocking her candidacy.

“I think there is a strong concern throughout the region, and I have heard this from many of our allies, about the direction that Nicaragua is taking. And this is not just our concern, it is a concern of practically the entire hemisphere,” added Blinken.
