MARTI I PUIG, SALVADOR. The Return of Ortega: The First Steps of his Second Administration. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp.287-303. ISSN 0718-090X.

In 2007 Nicaragua saw the electoral victory of Daniel Ortega to the presidential office and the first policy decisions of his government. This article first examines the process that brought the FSLN back to power. Secondly, it analyzes the composition and nature of the new government, as well as its first steps taken. It then presents the dynamics of the pacts and coalitions which have formed successively in the National Assembly, where the FSLN holds the largest minority position, and discusses the current constitutional reform debate. Finally, the article concludes with an analysis of the process of transformation that took place within the FSLN since it lost the election of 1990 until its return to power in 2007. On the basis of this change it asks what may be expected from the second Ortega administration.

Palabras clave : Nicaragua; Sandinism; FSLN; Daniel Ortega; Policy Change; Pacts.
