Premier Vows to Assure Democratic, Peaceful National Election

Addis Ababa, April 22, 2021 (Walta) – Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced government is intensively working to make the 6th National Election democratic and peaceful.

The Prime Minister discussed today with Heads of Regional States and NEBE to evaluate progress made since the last meeting in which direction was set to enable remaining stations to be opened and address pending matters.

The Premier noted on his face book page, elections are a demonstration of building a democratic culture in which differences are addressed through the ballot and not by the bullet.

Through the voting process, citizens exercise agency and actively participate in the building of a democratic process.

He urged the current elections are consequential in transitioning Ethiopia and hence collectively dispensing citizen duties is essential.
