Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Nicaragua’s president is sworn in again, so what’s next? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
To some, Nicaragua’s president Daniel Ortega is a dictator.
He won a fourth straight term last November after jailing opposition candidates.
But his supporters say he’s standing up to bullying from the West, especially the U.S.
Ortega was sworn in at a ceremony attended by allies including Russia, Venezuela and China.
So what’s in store now for one of the poorest nations in Central America?
