The legislation eliminates presidential term limits and lowers the bar for re-election by naming the candidate with the most votes as the winner, eliminating the current requirement for the winner to garner at least 35 percent. Ortega is serving his third term under a supreme court decision that overrode the constitutional ban.

Sixty-three of the 92 deputies in the National Assembly belong to Ortega’s party and the vote was 64-26 in favor of the constitutional changes.

Ortega said the measures were the result of extensive consultation. “I am sure that, when this reform is finally passed in the second legislative session next year, there will be greater tranquillity, more security, more peace, more joyfulness and more hope among the Nicaraguan people,” he said during a speech marking the graduation of police cadets.
