A Realistic Step Forward: The Ethiopian Elections in Context » Publications » Family Security Matters

On May 23rd, voters in Ethiopia will cast ballots in the country’s fourth parliamentary election since the establishment of a federal republic in 1995. While not a single ballot has yet been cast, some have already begun sowing doubts about the legitimacy of the poll. While there are undoubtedly areas where improvements are not only desirable, but quite possible with the right political will, so unhinged in their hatred for the incumbent government have so many of Ethiopia’s critics become that they have lost all sense of proportion and fail to evaluate developments in their proper context. This lack of perspective is regrettable in itself, but, when it has to do with a part of the world as strategically important as the Horn of Africa, it is especially deplorable as what is at stake is nothing less than the security of the region and the broader interests of the international community in general and the United States in particular.
