Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has been sworn in for a new five-year term.
Abiy took the oath of office today, following similar oaths by the speaker and deputy speaker of the parliament’s lower house.
His Prosperity Party was declared the winner of parliamentary elections earlier this year in a vote criticized and, at times, boycotted by opposition parties.
In June, the prime minister’s party won 410 of the 436 parliamentary seats that were contested.
The election marked the first time Abiy faced voters since he was appointed prime minister in 2018 following several years of anti-government protests.
