Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi arrives to cast his vote at a polling station in Adwa in 2010 election

Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi arrives to cast his vote at a polling station in Adwa 900km north, on May 23,2010 of the capital Addis Ababa. Ethiopians began voting in legislative elections Sunday as Prime Minister Meles Zenawi appeared set to extend his 19-year-old rule over sub-Saharan Africa’s second most populous country. With the country’s most charismatic opposition figure in prison and what rights groups have criticised as shrinking political freedom in recent years, the 55-year-old strongman seemed assured of being comfortably re-elected.
