Ethiopia Ruling Party, Allies Win All Declared Parliament Seats

Ethiopia’s ruling party and its allies won all 546 seats in the Horn of Africa’s federal parliament where results have been counted after elections last month, the electoral authority said.

The result from only one seat in the southern Ethiopian district of Bonga hasn’t been declared yet because polling there was delayed, Merga Bekana, chairman of the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia, told reporters Monday in the capital, Addis Ababa.

The Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front and it allied parties also won all 1,984 of the seats announced for the country’s regional legislatures, with three remaining from the Bonga district, Merga said.
