Latin American Representatives at Ortega's Swearing-in Ceremony
Managua, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) Governments from several Latin American countries will attend the swearing-in ceremony of reelected Nicaraguan President, Daniel Ortega, and Vice President, Rosario Murillo, which will take place in Revolution Square in the capital.
Bolivian President, Evo Morales, will also attended as will the heads of government of El Salvador, Salvador Sanchez Ceren and Haiti's, Michel Joseph Martelly.
The Salvadoran president described the possibility of attending today's ceremony as an honor and highlighted the bonds of friendship that unite the two Central American countries.
'We are here to accompany President (Ortega). We know he has done a great work here in Nicaragua. He has built a peaceful, safe country, he has managed to give prosperity to the Nicaraguan people, but he has also managed to develop an economy that is facing poverty,' Sanchez Ceren said.
Martelly expressed a similar opinion in his greeting to Nicaragua and all the members of his government, for giving the Sandinista leader the opportunity to continue his dream of giving a better life to those who do not have it.
'I am sure that the president will put all his effort into satisfying the people who believe in him,' the Haitian president said.
The first vice-president of the Councils of State and Ministers, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, heads Cuba's delegation to the inauguration of Ortega Saavedra.
Diaz-Canel, who is also a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba is accompanied by Vice-President of the Council of State Mercedes López Acea, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Rogelio Sierra Díaz and Juan Carlos Hernández Padrón, the Cuban Ambassador to Nicaragua, said official sources in Havana.
The swearing-in ceremony will take place in the Revolution Square, which is located in the ancient center of Managua, where Nicaraguans commemorate the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution over the dictatorship of the Somoza dynasty in 1979 every July 19th.
Ortega, who presided over the then first democratic government from 1985 to 1990, will return to serve another five-year term after his overwhelming victory with the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) in the November 6th elections.
