Dear Abdel qael: I am talking about the Etiyopiyan Constitution, and Tigraiy is still part of Etiyopiya
I have heard Getachew Reda say "We have the right to secede", but Tigraiy has not departed yet. Yes, according to the current Constitution of Etiyopiya, the People of Tigraiy have the right to self-determination up to secession, and I do respect that right, but Article 39 states the procedure to do so, and no referendum has been conducted yet. Unless Tigraiy leaves Etiyopiya peacefully, any unilateral declaration of independence or de facto State in Tigraiy shall invite troubles (the effects of lack of peaceful life, conflicts, wars, etc.) into Tigraiy (whose borderlines are not settled with neighbors), and regardless of what the elites believe, I don't want the People of Tigraiy to face such troubles anymore.
I am not trying to defend the Constitution of Etiyopiya but I am pointing out the problems that may follow from the stands TPLF leadership is taking vis-a-vis the Federal Government of Etiyopiya. There is a set of laws that is common to the Tigraiy Kellil and the Federal Government that both took oath to abide by. Political opinions/decisions are not the same with legal opinions/decisions, and that is where the TPLF leadership is erring, I think. The TPLF leadership's stance of defiance (based on political opinion only), without legal grounds from a decision by an Etiyopiyan court of law, puts it in a very weak position. That is the main reason why TPLF leadership is losing the right direction (a direction that pursues peace).That is not good for the People.
