MANAGUA, 19th August (RHC) – The United Nicaragua Triunfa Alliance of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) party has registered with the Supreme Electoral Council (CSE) to participate in the municipal elections on 6th November.

The legal representative of the FSLN, Deputy Edwin Castro, this Friday, accompanied by other members of the Alliance, presented the Charter to the Director of Attention to Political Parties of the CSE, Julio Acuña.

“In accordance with number three of the election calendar, we have come to request the registration of the Alianza Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, Unida Nicaragua Triunfa,” Castro said.

In this sense, the also leader of the Sandinista faction in the National Assembly (unicameral Parliament) added that this alliance stands for plurality, multiculturalism and ethnicity.

For his part, Jaime Morales, who represents the FSLN alliance, showed his support for those who intend to get the best positions in the next local elections, since they are the governments closest to the people.

“They need to respond quickly and effectively to their immediate needs, and we hope they are representative of all of these large minorities,” Morales said.

In this sense, the representative of the Nicaraguan Caribbean, and in turn a member of one of the political parties of the alliance, Karla White, underlined the determination to move forward with the government led by President Daniel Ortega and Vice-President Rosario Murillo.

“It is the right path for the future of our regions, our people, our nation. That’s why we keep working non-stop to move the projects, the programs forward,” he commented.

In addition to the FSLN, the alliance consists of the Liberal Nationalist Parties; Christian Unity; alternative for change; Nicaraguan Resistance; Indigenous Multiethnic; Yapti Tasba Masraka Raya Nani Movement (Myatamaran); Liberal Autonomous Party and the Moskitia Progressive Indigenous Movement Party (Moskitia Pawanka).

In the 2017 municipal elections, Alianza Unida Nicaragua Triunfa received 68 percent of the vote and 52 percent participation, according to official figures, giving it 135 of the 153 mayoral offices. (Source:PL)
