The way I see it is that Tigray want election as soon as possible because they lost power whereas when they were in power they did not hold fair elections. Abiy on the other hand wants to hold on to power as long as possible without direct election because he pissed off the Oromos and needs to make amends. Is that how it is?That is more complex than that. PM Abiy accepted the decision of the international court to hand over badme to Eritrea but still badme is controlled by the Ethiopian army (btw badme is a town at the border between Tigray and Eritrea and is currently inside Tigray). The reason is that the people of Tigray in badme fiercely protested and refused to be part of Eritrea. They were staging many protests against the decision of PM Abiy to accept the international ruling. Few months after that PM tried to pull the army out of Eritrea-Tigray boder but the people of tigray blocked roads and literary begged the army to stay. Tigrean know that their AK-47 militia is no match to the Eritrean army.
Btw, forget this Django guy, he has no clue whatsoever. He only writes his wishful thinking without having the hard data at hand . I'm xabashi and I know the inner workings of my people
Here are the hard facts!
