Ethiopians vote in elections seen as test for PM Abiy Ahmed

Published
Ethiopians voted in general elections on Monday, with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed seeking a popular mandate after his rise to power in 2018 ended decades of authoritarian rule.
But while Abiy's victory is seen as probable, the international community is unlikely to see the election as legitimate because of voting delays, violence in Tigray and a boycott by some opposition parties.
The polls were monitored by the African Union and a number of domestic groups, but the European Union did not send a team, blaming Ethiopia for failing to guarantee the independence of its mission.
