Nicaragua presidential and National Assembly elections take place today
Today elections take place in Nicaragua for the presidency, vice presidency, 90 seat National Assembly and 20 Nicaraguan representatives to the Central American Parliament. Six parties and alliances are taking part. Reforms to the electoral law in May 2021 included gender parity (not just for party lists but also for electoral officials), digital auditing and traceability of tallies to ensure transparency.
Each person elected will serve for a five year term ending in January 2027.
