The National Election Board of Ethiopia has released a more complete provisional result of the 4th National & Regional Election held on May 23/2010.
Accordingly, EPRDF & its associate parties won most of the seats of the federal parliament and the legislative councils of the nine regional states.
The tables below are taken from the official website of the National Election Board of Ethiopia.
I – Provisional results for the House of peoples’ Representatives
– The reference to ANDM appears to be an error. Since it is ANDM itself that has won the other 137 seats in Amhara State and is part of EPRDF.
II – Provisional results for the State Councils
* The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is consisted of nine states and two chartered city administrations. Elections for the legislative councils of the two city administrations, Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa, were held in 2008.
* * EPRDF is made up of four regional parties, namely TPLF, ANDM, OPDO, SEPDM
* * ANDP, BGPDP, GPUDM, SPDP, HNL are regional parties and officially partners or associates of EPRDF.
