Oposition in Nicaragua is at odds

Managua, Jul 22 (Prensa Latina) The oposition in Nicaragua is far today from achieving the long-awaited unity demanded by its political and economic mentors, it has further weakened with another disagreement between the so-caled National Coalition (NC) and the Civic Alliance.
The Pastrán Report digital newsletter describes this as 'a new opposition quarrel,' a new chapter in the old opposition dispute that took place on Tuesday, when Civic Alliance (CA) representatives informed the momentary withdrawal of the National Coalition, whose statutes they signed on June 25.
The Civic Alliance, controlled by businessmen according to this newsletter, insisted again to demand from the fraction formed by the Blue and White National Unity and the dissident Sandinista Renovation Movement (UNAB-MRS) that all decisions be made by consensus instead of giving priority to the majority, as stipulated on the Coalition's statutes.
Decisions by consensus would grant veto power to businessmen, which blocks the National Coalition's work, according to this newsletter.
A meeting with the seven groups that make up the Coalition should have taken place on Monday, but the Alliance sent a letter to inform its decision to not attend it, although it nuanced the situation by deeming its withdrawal temporary.
In its letter, the AC complains about the non-compliance of two artices of the statutes, one of them provisional.
It has been a month, and this commitment has been tainted by unclear reasons, which violates agenda agreements to address such fundamental issues, the Alliance complained.
