In a matter of hours, Ethiopian House of Peoples Representative will have its seventh regular session of its 4th year.

And it is expected to vote on proposal to elect National Election Board Chairperson, among other things, according to the report by state media, Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation (EBC) which cited sources from the Ethiopian Parliament.

The new chairperson will replace Samia Zakaria, former Ethiopian Ambassador to Nigeria, who was appointed as Election Board Chair in February 2018.

Sources in social media say former judge and opposition party leader Birtukan Mideksa who recently returned from seven years of exile in the United States is likely appointed to the position.

She returned to Ethiopia after being officially invited by the government of Ethiopia.
