Antonio Guterres has urged Ethiopian authorities to ensure that all voters cast their votes ” freely and peacefully”. He has asked all involved to refrain from any acts of violence or incitement. The UN posted his statement on Twitter: Voting has been taking place in Ethiopia since 6:00 local time – and BBC reporters have seen long queues of voters in the capital Addis Ababa and in other cities. No election is taking place in conflict-hit Tigray region as well other constituencies because of insecurity and irregularities.
