Ethiopian Parliament passes new electoral law


The Ethiopian parliament, the House of People’s Representatives, HoPR has approved a new electoral bill ahead of much anticipated national polls slated for next year.

Lawmakers convened in an extraordinary session on Saturday  to debate and pass the law which had been under construction since Abiy came into power in April 2018.

Report says the revised law of political parties registration and electoral ethics has been adopted unanimously by Ethiopia’s parliament.

On August 9,  Ethiopia’s ruling coalition said it will hold a national election in 2020, defying worries over security and displaced people within the country that had led some to speculate the election might be postponed.
