  1. Although we are still waiting for a final result, the ruling party is expected to secure 99.94% of the seats. That really makes Ethiopia the first country in the world to have a ruling party won with such a huge margin.

  2. This is the result of the useless kinijit leaders. And Lidetu had said it. We have to wait for the next 15 years
    This is punishment for few selfish ” opposition political leaders”
    Woyane shows its in human and dictator character

  3. Shame on Mamushet Amare”Mead secretary” who accuse Lidetu just week ago by saying that thereis no EPRDF candidate in Bugna and that was a special fare from woyane to Lidetu”
    Such liers deserve to be punished by woyane many times.
    I wish to ask him today who defeated Lidetu.
    At the same time he said that Mead has a candidtate in Bugna.
    I don’t want to see such personalities white liers in the opposition camp.Congradulations enemies of Lidetu,enemies of Ethiopia and white liers like Mamushet!!!

    Thank you mamo, I have no word to add.You said it all.Congra enemies of Lidetu.The good thing is EDP has more time to win the upcoming elections.I feel sorry for that loser generation.Who to blame???? woyane? Opposition? It seems to me that woyane want to show us they can do what they want to do, and also either the ppl boycote the opposition or scared by the intimidation of woyane or may be woyane do not want to face the so called boycote the result and so on and prefer to take all the seats kkkkkk very funy.

  6. ….Whatever people said i am fine with EPRDF, cause i am thinking of my family back home.

    Meles is too smart than ever in Ethiopian history,and he can do better thing for us,but we are not optimistic on our own country.

    Good bless Ethiopia and the people.

  7. Hhhhh, it’s very funny election. Full of drama from the beginning. Everybody remembers how the the election preparation on the EPRDF side begins.
    First, he send Burtikuan in to prison, then declared the what they call NGOs law, then another law I don’t know and then Closed Addis Neger news paper and finally he declared the code of conduct of the political parties. As to me these all actions were taken to make the election under control. He played alone and he won alone. This was the drama. Of course he got more voters than any other party,but it’s very hard to say it’s free and fair in the presence of unacceptable actions before the election.
    Ato Lidetu, you have been asking “who make MEDREK a big opposition party?” I hope now you have got the answer. I don’t know if Lidetu is lair or not but can you imagine a parliament without him, Ato Bulcha, Dr.negaso, Ato Temesgen, Dr. Merara, and so on. It will be like a biger “equb adarash”. Lenegeru mejemeryam yaw new. Bihonm………

  8. Do not be hopless,We want you.I have never seen such type of drama through out this world.

  10. I think Ato Lidetu has contributed a lot for this landslide victory of EPRDF. I believe he paralyzed the spirit and hope of younger generations particularly of those who can not change their minds as often as he does. But he has got what he desrves and let he be forgiven from now onwards. Ato Lidetu’s current idea, though is full of controversies, should have been introduced by other personalities. Coz if people in mob hate you for some reason, it takes you a light year or life time if shorter to fully forgive you and forget your misdeeds. I was not ardent supporter of the then Coalition, I rather prefered EPRDF in aticipation of its commitment to turn the freedom it gives to the people to the full liberty we deserve. However, its actions afterwards belittled me in the same manner of the split and abandon of the opposition party. In this year’s election too, though I believe that the results could have been upto 75% win by the incumbent as estimate of the Priemer, EPRDF should win and won as it has done a lot of great, and also some shameful things to to do so. What disgusted me worst is the demonstartion of EPRDF supporters on the Tuesday following the Election Day. I saw demostraters coming from as far as Dukem hanging various SIMILAR SLOGANS as every demonstrators in most other regional towns-what a similarity/coincidence!!!!! Besides, I guess as if the slogans were prepared by industrious people in printing areas over night… no. Anyways we all are people of the same nation. The fate of the next generation lays in our hand. If we do not have any freedom we deserve to have to day, what do we inherit our children?? We do not give what we do not have and in our old ages we do not expect from our children to give us any freedom we are not nourishing them today. Therefore, let’s hope better things for this country. We must show those superficially knowledgeable diasporas who think that Ethiopia is currently hell to live in that there can be another new alternative to build this nation without killing or destructing the incumbent. Lets have well constructed ideology that bases on the objective reality of this country. Lets have our liberty in its fullest sense by strongly respcting the liberties of others, not by snatching theirs. Let us say no to the nos and yes to the yeses. We all can not lead this country at the same time what we do is live in it (all of us) in liberity and prosperity. Lets not disgrace the credits of the incumbent but lets not only live upto its expectation. Lets have our own peaceful way and lets not persuade but only convince others of our idea. Diasporas, particularly who are well to do by mind and heart not by pocket, pls convince our citizens around you to think of unity and prosperity of our nation. Pls tell those who do not go to the same church/ mosque -though they are of the same religion-not to teach us that EPRDF is splitting this country in to many. Let they themselves first unite and respect their differences.Pls do not teach us hostility, hatered, and revenge and those of you who are only deep in the mouth but shallow in mind, for God sake, listen, read and understand the situation and try to have a clear vision of Ethiopia tomorrow before propagating your ill driven ideologies. We shall form a strong party who convinces the children(why not themselves)of the incumbent party leaders, supporters and the splitted diasporas of the existence of alternatives from which one can freely vote in 2015 election. Lets make a forum for that today.
