Nicaraguans go the polls on Sunday (Nov. 7 ) in a presidential election that U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has called “a sham.”  That’s because Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has barred prominent opposition candidates from running, further ensuring he will be elected to a fourth term as leader of the Central American nation.  Iacopo Luzi reports.  Produced by:  Marcus Harton
