Many asked after that why the meeting was rushing to releasing the statment before the meeting was concluded and the said agreement was officially inked down? There must be something that you are hiding from the public.
How did a suspended meeting manage to reach at an agreement and what will happen to the "agreement" now?
EPRDF Politics: Light at the end of the tunnel!!
After an extensive discussion on democracy and inter party relationship, on the supremacy of law and Ethiopia’s unique federalism, the meeting is expected to finish within days. Although the leaders have discussed in details on all the issues there will be more meeting where individual parties will have to sort out their own issues. This meeting will not result in the dismissal or jailing of individuals accused of illegal activities! Leaders who failed to uphold EPRDF ideals and those who have been accused promoting anti federalism sentiments will be held accountable either within their own organization or at the institutions they are leading or working. The executive team is expected to issue general guidelines individual parties will have to follow based on the agreement reached which is believed to be extensive. As you known EPRDF congress has been postponed already to the maximum limit internal bylaws will allow. However, there is a rumor a request has been submitted to extend the congress date one more time! Given the current political development many we talked think extending the congress date will be extending the misery of Ethiopians.
Meantime,there was some drama by Parliamentarians on the issue of Addis Ababa and Oromia relationship outside EPRDF Executive meeting!The issue which has been tabled for discussion was postponed due to disagreement between MPs. Speaker Aba Dula was present for the committee level discussion but could not bring order as he had wished. The draft proclamation that will be discussed was drafted by OPDO we are told, yet, MPs from the OPDO could not agree how to go forward. Meantime BBC and likes are fanning this issue as if the sky is falling over parliament. In spite of all the negative developments light is at the end of the tunnel and EPRDF is expected to come out stronger! Aigaforum Dec 23, 2017
