The Very First Pre-Election Survey Conducted in Ethiopia

The first ever pre-election survey conducted by Initiative Africa with the participation of Addis Ababa Women Entrepreneurs' Association and Build Ethiopia is said to be completed with the final version expected to be out next April 10.

The main objective of the survey, according to Initiative Africa, is to explain why voters vote the way they do and why some parties are more successful than others.

The survey was conducted in 138 enumeration areas and the samples are representative of the urban areas of the four major regions of Tigray, Oromia, Amhara, and SNNP in addition to Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa and Harar cities.
