Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega was sworn in for a fourth consecutive term on Monday after elections deemed rigged and a day marked by sanctions by the United States and the European Union against members of his government.

Beside him was First Lady Rosario Murillo, sworn in for her second term as Vice President.

“We will continue to fight to defend the people so that they have health care, education and housing,” said the former Sandinista commander in the capital’s Revolution Square filled with his party flags. .
