Ethiopia votes in elections delayed by COVID-19, overshadowed by Tigray war - DW News.

Ethiopians have begun voting in general elections that are seen as the first major test of prime minister Abiy Ahmed and his ruling coalition.
The elections were scheduled to take place last year and were delayed by the pandemic, but the coronavirus isn't the only challenge Abiy Ahmed is facing. The vote comes as war rages in the northern Tigray region, in turn triggering a famine that threatens hundreds of thousands of people.
Opposition groups accused Ethiopia's ruling party of harassment -- but the prime minister promised that the election will be peaceful.
