TPLF should just accept facts. They have lost political power over the federal government, it will not come back again. They will also loose Tigray in the coming election. Their days are over! If they continue with the arrogance, they will be kicked out of EPRDF even before the election and face being a tiny minority in parliament.

TPLF Denounces Ethiopia’s Peace Deal With Eritrea, Calls for Emergency Meeting

“The Badme horse is out of the barn and gone. Badme is water under the bridge. There is nothing that can be done legally to undo it or challenge it. There can be no buyer’s remorse. Ethiopia cannot go back to December 2000 and undo the Algiers Agreement. Once Meles signed on the dotted line in the Algiers Agreement, it was all over. The fate of Badme was sealed. The Decision of the Boundary Commission will be implemented without ifs or buts.” – Prof. Al Mariam
TPLF rejects recent decision by the ruling EPRDF coalition to fully accept the Algiers Agreement
Anti-peace TPLF today denounces the recent decision by the ruling EPRDF coalition to unconditionally accept the Algiers Agreement and as well as the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission’s decision as “fundamentally flawed” and calls for an emergency meeting.
BY ETENESH ABERA | ADDIS STANDARD
A statement released by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the ruling EPRDF’s oldest member, called Ethiopia’s recent decision to accept fully the Ethiopia-Eritrea Algiers Agreement and the subsequent decision by the boundary commission and to partially and/or wholly privatize major state-owned companies have “fundamental flaws”.
The statement also called for the executive and the council of ruling party EPRDF, led by the new Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, to hold an emergency meeting to review these and other issues of importance.
In an unprecedented move after a day-long meeting by the 36 Executive Committee members of the ruling EPRDF, a statement released on June 05/2018 by the politburo said “Ethiopia will fully accept the December 12, 2000, Algiers Agreement”, a peace agreement between the governments of Eritrea and Ethiopia, which established a special boundary commission.
The executive also decided to open up Ethiopia’s economy both to Ethiopian and foreign investors by making partial or full privatizations in key state-owned enterprises including industrial parks, railway projects, sugar factories, hotels and other manufacturing industries.
TPLF’s statement came after a two-day emergency meeting by the executive of the TPLF which took place between today and yesterday in Mekelle city, the capital of the Tigray regional state in northern Ethiopia.
It further said that EPRDF’s decision both on Eritrea and the economy “failed to take into account” the “fundamental leadership deficit and its damages visible within the EPRDF coalition and failed to evaluate the progress in the recent “deep reform” agenda the party, as a collective, was undertaking in order to solve the mounting challenges it was facing.
But it also condemned the decision on the bases that it was made public without the consent from the 180 EPRDF council members, as party doctrine dictates; the participation of EPRDF’s five satellite parties representing Ethiopia’s periphery i.e: parties that represent the Ethiopian Somali, Harari, Afar, Benishangul and Gambella regional states; and without due consultation with relevant bodies.
