The Council of the ruling EPRDF has elected Abiy Ahmed (PhD) its third chairman today.

The candidate from the OPDO, Abiy Ahmed (PhD), has carried a landslide votes of 108 against his rivals from SPDM, Shiferaw Shigute, who has received 59 votes and TPLF’s Debretsion Gebremichael’s (PhD), who did get only two votes, sources disclosed to Fortune.

The candidate from the ANDM, Demeke Mekonnen, has declined to accept a bid for the chairmanship of the EPRDF last minute, paving the way for many of the Council members voting for OPDO’s candidate, Abiy Ahmed (PhD), people close to the process told Fortune.

This led many of the Council members from the TPLF voting for a candidate other than their chairman, Debretsion Gebremichael (PhD), who has managed to receive only two votes.

Tamrat Layne: Testimony on how Ethiopia’s early political life under TPLF manuvre was configured

26 Nov

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory

Tamrat Layne, a man leading a born again Christian life now, was formerly Ethiopia’s first prime minister in the early TPLF/EPRDF administration. He gave this interview with SBS, which is very informative especially about the early days of the TPLF/EPRDF relations and how Meles Zenawi outsmarted all others, in a way for which Ethiopia would continue to pay heavy prices in the years to come.

Is EPRDF Council on-going session truly dominated by motley of Ethiopia’s problems, or the party’s?

    It is reported that the Council finished its meetings Tuesday evening. Unfortunately, it has not decided to tell the public anything new. The brief news items spoke of the usual stuff about GTE and problems of bad governance. In the case of the latter, it stressed the need for serious efforts to change the situation, according to Fana.



At such an important moment for Ethiopians, when the nation is preparing to greet its Year 2006, the country’s ruling party has been in session for three days now. We are told that the council is deliberating, among others, on good governance issues. By definition, it means that the TPLF/EPRDF is discussing its own record of failures in delivering the services the nation has been in need of and demanding, without much success this far.
