Ethiopia election: Will delayed polls mirror those of the past?
Gov’t says June 21 vote will be a break away from previous polls but critics say process is not free and fair.In a televised statement in April, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed promised Ethiopians they would be able to shape the country’s destiny with their vote.

. The AFD is today more than years ago "a Chaotic Protest Party," said the Groupless Bundestag deputy on Friday at the presentation of her book "Requiem for the AFD" in Berlin.

Petry belonged to the first members of the party founded in 2013. After the 2007 general election, she joined. In the case of the AFD, she criticizes in her book, above all, the influence of the right-wing air flow around the Thuringian AfD Landeschef Björn Höcke, which has been growing from its point of view.

In the opinion of the former party feet, negative developments in the AFD are also a consequence of financial benefits and supporting measures of sympathizers who are not members of the party. (dpa)
