“The Ethiopian electoral framework provides for the participation of Ethiopian nationals residing abroad in the elections as long as the National Election Board of Ethiopia (NEBE) submits a study on the issue for parliamentary approval. Citing the tight timeframe, other pressing needs (including public health requirements and preparations for special polling stations for internally displaced persons) and budgetary limitations, however, the NEBE is not considering conducting out-of-country voting for the upcoming general elections.”
