Nicaraguan President chose his wife as a candidate for Vice-President

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega chose his wife, Rosario Murillo, a candidate for Vice-President. It is reported Bi-bi-si. She will take the post in that case that the policy will be re-elected for a third term.

As explained by the radio and television, is now the first lady is the chief press Secretary of the government and is already playing a noticeable role in the political life of Nicaragua. While Ortega himself rarely appears in the media, his wife appears on local television almost every day, commenting on political issues and promoting their brand of “new age” spirituality.

Critics in turn accuse the President and his wife that they’re trying to make the country a “personal fiefdom”. The opposition is also concerned that her promotion could Herald the emergence of a new family dynasty.

70-year-old Ortega, a former leftist guerrilla, came to power after the overthrow of the dictatorship of the Somoza family, who ruled Nicaragua for four decades. Ortega was President of Nicaragua from 1985 to 1990 and from November 2006 to the present.
