Negele Polling Stations to See Elections Soon

July 3 , 2021

Voting at 34 polling stations in the Negele constituency of Oromia Regional State will be conducted soon, announced the National Election Board of Ethiopia (NEBE). Proceedings at the 139 stations in the constituency were hampered as an independent candidate was not represented on ballot papers. Two independent candidates, a representative each from Prosperity Party and Ethiopian Citizens For Social Justice (EZEMA) were vying for a parliamentary seat. Though the Board ordered elections to be paused throughout the constituency on June 21, 2021, 105 of the stations carried on as they received the memo late. The independent candidate later rescinded his contention, stating that the elections should not be stopped because of him.
