Once again, Ethiopia has delayed the June 5 national elections, citing "logistical issues.” Due to deadly tensions in the Tigray region, the vote would not have been conducted there, and some opposition parties have declared they won't participate in the election.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed stated he would not allow the delayed election to be exploited "to fulfill the interest of external forces.”
