Polls close in Ethiopia's controversial regional election

Will Ross

Africa editor, BBC World Service

Polls have officially closed in northern Ethiopia's Tigray region in a local election that the federal government has deemed illegal.

Officials say turn out was more than 97%.

National and regional polls were due to be held in August but the government in Addis Ababa postponed the vote because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The main party in the region, the TPLF, used to dominate Ethiopia's governments. But it was sidelined after Prime Minister Ahmed Abiy came to power two years ago and is now in a deepening dispute with his government.

Correspondents say the decision to go ahead with the election was partly to underline TPLF's position that Mr Abiy has no legitimacy after he postponed elections.

Museveni: How to win friends and influence the youth

Yoweri Museveni, Uganda's septuagenarian president, has been speaking about the strategy he uses to win over young people on social media - including those who "abuse me, saying you are very stupid".

His strategy, he said, was to stay engaged in robust debates so as to convince his critics.

"I don't have to fight with these children to win them over, and when I send messages to answer them when there were 10 who were attacking me, only six remain, four answer back saying the old man has made a good point."

Mr Museveni has ruled Uganda since 1986 and will stand for a sixth term in next year's election.

Among those planning to run against him is musician-turned-politician Bobi Wine, 38, who is popular with the youth.
