( When EPRDF lost all but one seat in the capital during the 2005 election PM Meles the then chairman of EPRDF said with no uncertain terms, his party lost a protest vote. Meles acknowledged the reason the people of Addis did not vote for EPRDF was because his party was not doing enough to bring change, Meles never looked for external factors to blame! Semayawi or Mederek should look inwards and come up with a reasonable explanation why they were rejected by voters. Anything else, as they say is the grape is sour argument!)

Neither a sprint nor a marathon
Africa’s most impressive economic managers suffer from excessive caution....[[The article may be full of assumptions but we agree over all the coming challenge(s) to Ethiopia will be from the unemployed and growing urban youth! If there is any take away from the current election, it is, the coming out of Semayawi party with the youth as its main constituent. Semayawi may have gambled this time associating with the wuhabist fanatics but come next time they may learn and try to exploit the youth dissatisfaction with lack of progress]

HERZLIYA, Israel CRISIS averted? Scientists may be on the verge of resolving a potentially war-triggering water dispute: how to share out the flow of the River Nile.

Analysis: As Ethiopia votes, human rights are not the real story
Ethiopia’s elections have been overshadowed by criticism of the government’s human rights record. Fair enough, it’s a poor record. But this kind of one-dimensional thinking misses the point entirely. Far from tearing Ethiopia down, we should be looking at all the things this country is doing right. By SIMON ALLISON.

Ethiopia: Update on Election 2007(EC)
This year's election turnout was massive and yet the most peaceful one. Though western media have been trying to undermine the election as nothing but fair and free Ethiopians have voted in masses! Many analyst have been wishfully expecting the opposition to gain some seats even though none of the oppositions were prepared to compete honestly. Even if they were to win all seats they were competing none of the opposition would have won a majority vote. The best the opposition could have hoped for is to come second to EPRDF as viable opposition collectively. An absolute control of parliament by EPRDF may not be good for democracy since EPRDF itself complains about the lack of good governance but it seems people have spoken! One hopes this will be good for development as a committed single minded government can do a lot of good things to develop the infrastructure and the economy! ....
