Ethiopia is currently holding its sixth national referendum, as is common knowledge. Elections are well-known for being vigorous, competitive, and contentious.

The Prosperity Party said in a letter to the board that the Amhara National Movement (ANM) was behind the protests and that the billboards and posters were put up by the ANM.
In the grounds of this allegation, the Board looked into the matter. The Prosperity Party claimed to have called the demonstrations in a tweet, but there was no proof that the Amhara National Movement had called them, either in the attached letter or in the media and social media. As a result, since the protests had no prior interaction with the referendum or political groups, there was no reason to investigate their proposals, slogans, or similar topics.
