Ethiopia’s political rights rating declined from 6 to 7 due to the government’s systematic constriction of political space surrounding the May parliamentary elections. The ruling party took all the seats in the lower house, the preelection period was marked by the detention and arrest of opposition members, and discrimination against and harassment of Muslims and the Oromo population limited their participation in the political process.

A full narrative report for this country will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
