Ethiopia has postponed parliamentary elections due on June 5, the country’s electoral body said on Saturday, adding it did not foresee a delay of more than three weeks. Reuters reports that the country was originally scheduled to hold the vote in August 2020 but it was delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, there has been conflict in the northern region of Tigray, which will not take part in voting, as well as in other areas. The chairperson of The National Electoral Board of Ethiopia has now “indicated that delays in opening polling stations and voter registration have pushed the voting day” even further back.
