Ato Elias Kifle short interview(Jan.31), fifteen
minutes, with Ato Bulcha Demeksa confirmed once again
what we have been hearing in the last few weeks
through VOA and German Amharic, this election
registration can be summarized as "Chase everyone and
register only TPLF/EPRDF candidates" which is
estimated according to their spokesperson Ato Tesfaye
Mengesha who is in charge of this "chase them" claims
to register about three million of TPLF candidates and
more than twenty million terrified and intimidated
registered/hostage voters.

What a mockery of election!! and Ato Bulcha Demekssa

extension of registration for more than a week.

time to waste of talking about factions of oppositions
be it Kinijit or EPRP because TPLF/EPRDF had made it
clear that they will not allow anybody to participate
as candidate on this local election.

Ato Bulcha's OFDM has been a target in many of his
constituents and the new ARENA Party of Ato Gebru is
boycotting this election and as we know Kinijit is out
of this local election.

The millions who voted for Kinijit in 2005 should stay
home and that demands leadership and for that the
general Assembly of Kinijit is a must and no time to
