Nicaragua is having elections on the 7th of November. The minimum conditions for a free, fair and transparent election have not been met, and the whole process is likely to be fraudulent. Chatham House and the LSE School of Public Policy will be co-hosting a virtual panel to discuss the situation on the ground in Nicaragua and appropriate response from Western democracies.
This event is hosted in partnership with the LSE School of Public Policy.
