Local Election Postponed to Next Year




The fifth local elections for Addis Abeba and kebeles across the country has been postponed to next year after MP voted today, with eight votes of abstaining.

Officials from the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia (NEBE) have tabled a petition to Parliament today, April 12, 2018, where 310 MPs were in attendance.

The rescheduling is required due to unprecedented development in the country that led to political violence and unrests which made preparation for the election difficult, according to the Board’s officials.

Local elections are held every five years for kebele and wereda councils in the eight regional states as well as Addis Abeba and Dire Dawa city administrations.
