Over five million voters are expected to cast their ballots in the Regional State today, after the Board postponed the polls in June citing similar security concerns.

Elections being conducted in 47 constituencies, in the Harari, Somali, and Southern regional states as well as Dire Dawa City, are otherwise progressing well, remarked the Chairperson during a press briefing held at the Skylight Hotel earlier today.

"We've only encountered minor issues with logisitics," said Birtukan.
