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.

የግንቦት7 አባል አይደለሁም። የማናቸውም ድርጅት — ሃገር ውስጥም ከሃገር ውጭ — የአባልነት ካርድ የለኝም። በተለይም ወሎ ውስጥ ባሉ ዜጎቻችን ላይ ሕወሃት የፈጸማቸውን ጸረ-ሕዝብነት፣ በኢትዮጵያዊነቴና ለኢትዮጵያ ከበሬታና አንድነቷ ባለኝ ቀንዓዊነት ብቻ ሰሞኑን ግንቦት7 በሠጠው አወዛጋቢ መግለጫ ዙርያ ያመነታሁበትን አስተያየቴን አሁን ሠንዝራለሁ።

ነገር ግን በተለይ ግንቦት7 የነገይቱ ኢትዮጵያ ዴሞክራሲያዊ እንቅስቃሴ አካል ለመሆን ቢችል ደስታዬ ከፍተኛ እንደሆነ ግንቦት 14/2016 በጽሁፍ ገጼ ላይ እንደሚከተለው አሥፍሬ ነበር:-

    “Mr. Keffyalew Gebremedhin is not an advocate of position of any particular political party. As non-affiliated individual, not belonging to any political party at home and abroad, his sympathy to AG7 is nothing more than sympathy to the views it articulates for a democratic Ethiopia.”
