Ethiopian opposition parties threaten election boycott One of the amendments raised the number of signatures to register a national party to 10,000, up from 1,500. Regional parties will need 4,000 signatures, up from 750.
If the opposition can not find 10000 members nationwide and 4000 members within their region, then why are they even worried about the election? Can they win with 750 registered supporters in any Kilil/region? If they have to oppose the law they should oppose it for something else not for such embarrassing inclusion! Ethiopian politics is full of intrigues and I am sure this is the work of the forces who are trying to prolong Abiy government by canceling the coming election. If what I am hearing is even half true, postponing the election will be catastrophic for the country and those in power. Hear ye!

Tigray and Tigrayans, individually and collectively, have been subjected to multi-pronged and multifaceted attacks and harms in the past four years, especially in the past 15 months.

In the process, Tigryans have shown an admirable unity of purpose...
Beyond Ethiopia's identity politics: Exploring class cleavages Addis Abeba, August 16, 2019 – As Ethiopia is preparing for parliamentary elections come next year, a striking feature of the political landscape is the total absence of a clear leftist alternative. All the parties currently active in Ethiopia are anchored in different forms of identity politics, (most of them either aligned with a distinct ethno-nationalist or pan-Ethiopianist ideologies) or the new and yet to be tested alternative of 'citizenship politics.'
Enigmatic reformer Yilma Debele 9-3-19 - I would say the Ethiopian Premier is a very enigmatic leader. I should say, his problem emanates with his own base. This person is an Oromo. He represents an Oromo party. For one reason or another person happens to be a Premier. Look, when this person ascended to the throne, really, nowhere in Ethiopia rallying support took place but in the Amhara region.

Soft power influence in the Arabian Gulf Kuwait in the 1980s, then (UAE member) Dubai in the 1990s, and Qatar and Abu Dhabi in the 2000s all spent lavishly in the quest for influence.
