Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega is sworn in for another term
Managua, Nicaragua (NTN24) — Daniel Ortega was sworn in Tuesday for his third 5-year term as president of Nicaragua, shrugging off opposition complaints his re-election was illegal and vowing to govern with moderation. Ortega took the oath of office in front of about 8000 people gathered at Revolution Plaza, the site where he and his ragtag band of Sandinista rebels celebrated the overthrow of dictator Anastasio Somoza in 1979. Presidents from all other Central American nations attended the inauguration, but the most notable visitor was Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is touring the region to bolster his country's alliances in the US neighborhood at a moment of sharp disputes with Washington.
