sion. he is a professor of international relations at george washington university, and also a former us ambassador to ethiopia. he joins us now from washington. d. c. professor, this is hardly a surprise. how is the 3rd actually being viewed? i think it's a little early to john jr. how it's being viewed both internally and. ready and in the international community, i think it is a success qualifying success for prime minister ivy. but with some caviar auction, that is the fact that one of the constituencies did not participate in the election for either technical or other reasons. you had a boy caught by several people, little parties, and there have been some 207 complaints about the election. but nevertheless, there was a high voter turnout and that appears his level a peaceful. well, the 1st mister sion, of course,
2:04 am
to place before the rather embarrassing military defeat, that these forces suffered at the hands of the t, b, l. s. and t guy. how much legitimacy does he have now within not only his policy, but within the country? you know, that's an interesting question and it's, it's the election, of course, took place before the military defeat and t grey. so we have no impact upon the election remains to be seen. what people think about the problems that the government now faces and great that may come back to haunt or prime minister abbey . but in the meantime, you can are right on his laurels of electoral victory. well, i'm curious about that because a number of areas where they have been security concerns as well as you say, haven't voted yet. the numbers here mean nothing's gonna change. still the facing armed movements and the number of parts of the country as well as international attention as monetary and situation deteriorates even further in t y. so what is top of his agenda right now in terms of his priorities?

2:06 am
we've seen an increasingly centralized state. how is he now being viewed abroad by other countries, especially after he was a nobel peace story back in 2019 already has been some concern internationally, particularly in terms of how the whole t gray situation has been handled. read the whole question of ethnic federalism. those. ready very common blacks and we're much involved in internal ethiopian concerns on how they see the future of the country. that's going to be a quick resolution to that problem or that issue. i think that there will be elements of federalism that remain no matter why. but it may not be the same kind of federalism that you saw under the previous government revolutionary democratic products. interesting times indeed for if you're, if you're davidson, that professor of international relations at george washington university and also former us ambassador, ethiopia,
