The “opposition”, linked to foreign interests, intensified its attacks on Republican institutions, in addition to acting as lobbyists in order to increase Washington’s economic, financial and diplomatic sanctions against their own country, the Colombian Communist Party stated.
In the face of such actions, this opposition in Nicaragua is “clearly unpatriotic”, the political party pointed out.
The media warfare to portray to the world as “raids” or illegal arrests, the investigations and arrests of a series of individuals who, receiving illegal foreign funding were engaged in actions of internal destabilization, has sought to undermine and ignore in advance the electoral results of yesterday’s elections, it warned.
The Colombian Communist Party expressed its solidarity with the Nicaraguan people and their government, Sandino’ s legacy followers, and emphasized that the campaign of lies, double standards and media misinformation seek to ignore the ‘Empire’ s attempts to intensify the harassment and blockade measures against the Central American nation.
Nicaraguan elections express the right to self-determination and the exercise of national sovereignty within the constitutional order, which it called to respect and support.
