Addis Abeba November 18/2019 – The Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) Executive Committee meeting has entered its third day today in what would become the last such meetings before the official end of the Front as a collective of four major parties and five allied parties that form Ethiopia’s governing coalition.

In its first day meeting on Saturday, the Executive Committee has approved the merger of EPRDF paving ways for the formation of the new party, Prosperity Party. Six EC members representing TPLF have voted against the planned merger.

The meeting continued yesterday and “addressed key issues related to the programs of the newly merged party,” according to PM Abiy Ahmed, who is also the current chairman of EPRDF. “I am pleased to share the program is approved,” PM Abiy Tweeted.

Accordingly, the approved party program will be sent to the EPRDF Council for future deliberation, Fikadu Tessema, EPRDF EC representing ODP told state media.

  1. I hope the gov. of Abey will, at least from now on, take all necessary measures to contain the bunda’s and their crony’s. These entities operating in human bodies need to be smashed any way, for the sake of peace and respect of law by employing all juridicial capacities. TPLF and violent Ethnic politicians have to update themselves to humanity standards otherwise Ethiopia needs to consume them in anyway. These shall come true!

  4. The proclamation that recently entered into effect viz. “Ethiopian Election, Political Parties Registration and Election Ethics” allows the merger we’re seeing now.

    Unofficial copy of the proclamation is available on the net.

    The relevant provisions are : Article 2 (25) which defines “merger”, Article 91 which elaborates and /or expands the definition of “merger” and Article 92 which specifies effects of “merger”.

    Once the merger is complete, the new political entity needs to register under the proclamation.

    The question is: Would the merger hold in the regions where the ethnic divide is intense or the merger remain at the leadership level making the entire exercise useless?

    The effort to merge according to the terms and spirit of the proclamation might pose a serious challenge, but it’s an ideal worth trying given the disastrous situation the country and its people find themselves right now.

    Good luck, folks!
