Daniel Ortega, the veteran revolutionary leader, has registered as a
candidate for president of Nicaragua for a fourth time with a promise that
his Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) has changed.

Mr Ortega, who leads in early polls for the November contest, said the party
would respect private property, maintain good relations with the US and
search for consensus on how to deal with the multilateral financial
institutions on whose loans and debt relief plans the impoverished central
America country depends.
