    People in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region will not take part in Monday’s general elections.

    The government says conditions on the ground do not allow for the vote, and has promised to hold elections once things stabilise.

    More than two million people have been displaced by months of conflict that have forced tens of thousands of people to seek refuge in neighbouring Sudan.

    1. Aljezira is not genuine public media sources as it officially covering fake and fabricated news favouring the let Woyane Junta and Egypt. All the conflicts happing in Ethiopia is because of Woyane Junta & Egypt and well supported by Wester world including USA & UK. We Ethiopians have the right to live as one nation and to feed our selves using our God given resources. We know that there is no global court to stand by the side of poor nation when all big nations started what ever they want to do.

      But Thanks to God there are China and RUSSIA to stand in opposition to unfair & undemocratic West. And we Know for Sure that THE DEVIL BY NO MEANS CAN DESTROY WHAT GOD STARTED DOING IN ETHIOPIA! Abiy Ahmed is GOD’s GIFT to ETHIOPIA!
