Shabait.com’s editorial on the election in Ethiopia

Eritrean Ministry of Information’s Shabait.com has posted the following editorial today regarding the May 23, 2010 elections in Ethiopia:

The Ethiopian people had in 2005 once and for all made their choice clear in no uncertain terms, voting for the TPLF regime to rescind from power. Still, the so-called ‘advocates of democracy’, were once again compelled to stage another elections drama so as to buy another five-year ticket for their agent regime. Unfortunately, the TPLF regime turned out to be a bad performer and the ‘directors’ of the drama were left unimpressed. Consequently these ‘directors’ were forced to add additional scenes into the drama in which the ‘guest stars’ mumble something about the election not being ” up to international standards”.

However, realizing that they cannot find a more debase agent than the TPLF regime, these quarters swallowed their disappointment and kept on cheering for the drama that flopped even before it premiered. A theatrical presentation attended only by the ‘directors’ and ‘performers’ themselves!
