Provisional Results for Federal & State legislative seats

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.

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
