Ethiopia election: Abiy Ahmed wins with huge majority.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has won the country's delayed elections with an overwhelming majority, the election board said on Saturday 10 July 2021.

The board said Mr Abiy's Prosperity Party won 410 out of 436 seats, giving him another five-year term in office.

Polls were not held in the war-torn Tigray region, where many thousands are living in famine conditions.

In all, a fifth of the country failed to take part in voting owing to insecurity and logistical problems.

Another round of elections has been provisionally scheduled for 6 September in the affected areas, but there is no date for a vote in Tigray.

The election had already been delayed due to the pandemic.
