Tigray People Liberation Front (TPLF), the decision party for one of Ethiopia's self-governing states, has been announced the champ of a questionable territorial political race hung on Wednesday (Sept. 9).
It comes only seven days after the Ethiopian House of Federation announced the political race as "invalid and void", declaring that the survey was illegal. Head administrator Abiy Ahmed, in a meeting with the state's Ethiopian Broadcasting Authority, said the political decision was not authentic and compared it to vagrants illicitly fabricating a shanty house ashore they didn't claim.
While TPLF won 98.5% of the 190 seats for the Tigray Regional Council, the rest was shared among resistance groups. While over 2.6 million citizens were enrolled, turnout was 97%, as per Tigray Electoral Commission, which was built up a quarter of a year back after the government chose to defer the public political race for an inconclusive timeframe due to the Covid and the National Electoral Board wouldn't lead Tigray Region's political race.
