The U.S. government does not seem satisfied with the conduct of Ethiopia’s electoral process. The U.S. has “expressed our concerns on democracy and governance directly to the government. Measures the Ethiopian government takes following these elections will influence the future direction of US-Ethiopian relations,” State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said. Re-electionist Meles Zenawi had a landslide victory as the nation’s prime minister on Sunday’s polls, reports. The European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton welcomed the peaceful conduct of Ethiopian elections, stressing that the bloc is keen on strengthening democracy in the African nation.
