Setback for Ortego plan


NICARAGUA: PRESIDENT Daniel Ortega’s attempt to run for re-election has been halted by congress.

Politician­s refuse to recognise a Supreme Court decision that would allow him to run again in 2011 by overturnin­g bans on consecutiv­e re-election and serving more than two terms.

The National Assembly approved a resolution to oppose the decision. It is now up to the electoral commission to choose which branch of government to heed.
