Antenor Rosales, Nicaraguan Central Bank president, indicated that the request to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is to continue the program, which was signed in 2007, until 2011 (election year).

In a press conference, Rosales added that it makes sense that it should be the new government that discusses the basis for Nicaragua's relationship with the IMF in the coming years, according to Terra's web portal.
