Ethiopians to protest “biased” election report

Reading time 1 min.

Ethiopians are expected to hold a public demonstration tomorrow, Tuesday, against the US based Human Rights Watch. The protest comes in the backdrop of a report released by the organization condemning the country’s election as unfair and undemocratic.

Addis Ababa Youth Association has called the Ethiopian public to stand against the Human Rights Watch’s “biased” report.

A press released from the youth association today, Monday, argues that yesterday’s polls is an internal affair and only the Ethiopian public can oppose the election process.

In a similar move, a press release issued from Government Communications Office of Ethiopia has rejected the human rights watch release.

The Addis Ababa Youth Association says it condemns the human rights watch report for explicitly indicating both their and their associates’ deep interest to appoint their preferred government on behalf of Ethiopians.

Although foreign aid plays a major role in the country’s development effort, only the Ethiopian people have the power to elect their government, the office indicated in a press release issued late today.
