The National Electoral Board of Ethiopia (NEBE) said on Monday evening it has given badges to more than 45,000 local poll observers. More than 167 local civic organizations have been given recognition by the board to conduct voters training programs, Solyana Shimelis, the NEBE spokeswoman, told the media.

 “NEBE has also prepared 44,372 polling stations which are expected to be used to cast votes,” the NEBE spokeswoman said.

More than 8,200 candidates have registered for the upcoming sixth national general elections scheduled for June 21, the NEBE has said. Under Ethiopia’s parliamentary government system, the prime minister, who is the highest authority of the country, is selected from the party that wins the most seats at the federal parliament level and will be sworn in after the parliamentary vote.
