Ethiopia: Update on Election 2007(EC)
Although some expected Dr Merara and Dr Beyene to reclaim their lost seat in parliament preliminary count suggests EPRDF has won both seats and 100% sweep in the Capital City as well as other regions! The only region opposition has a chance to win some seats is in Amhara Kilil but that is not certain either so far Gondor is all gone to EPRDF.
