Parliamentary elections are scheduled in Ethiopia for May 2020.
“Before the recent period of reforms, Ethiopia was ruled under an iron fist for 28 years essentially under the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) which dominated the four-party coalition of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF).
The TPLF-led government had been accused of bad governance, oligarchy, nepotism, economic injustices and severe human rights violations for which the government (of reformist President Ahmed) Abiy apologised from the outset of his taking office. Taking the helm of the EPRDF, Abiy has since tried to curb the TPLF’s clout.” (aa.com, 06.12.19)
