Nicaragua's president is sworn in again, so what's next? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera, 12 Jan 2022

He won a fourth straight term last November after jailing opposition candidates.

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?
