Latin America Goes Left

In Nicaraguan local elections held on the same day the Ukrainian ones, Sandinistas won almost all cities.

And while I'm a bit late to write about it, a few weeks ago the first socialist government in Uruguay since independence was elected. Elsewhere, incumbent leftists were reinforced in local elections: in Chile and Venezuela (in the former, beyond the majority centre-leftists, almost 10% went to the strong left). In South America, if I count it right, only Paraguay and Columbia remain in the hands of the right.
