ODP has historic opportunity of being the major power holder with foreign support, and it's natural to take its platform, as articulated by PM Abiy and President Lemma, national.

It's well known, to overcome the perception of being hired hand, ODP recently brought in seasoned and genuine Oromo party, ODF, an offshoot of OLF. This has enabled it to compete against OLF and others in Oromia that are in the heart and minds of the Oromo.

ODP, if it chooses, can do the same all over the country. Just as a moderate off shoot of OLF has been brought in as equal partner, a moderate offshoots of ARENA and ABN can be brought in as well. Then re-orient their nationalistic attitudes without having to condemn the nationalist groups they come from. This can be multiplied everwhere for a stronger federalists party that serves wider area and diverse interests instead of each pursuing fragmented interests.

Concurrently, or once the moderate federalists precence is expanded from Oroma to the rest, off shoots of the unitary parties like G7 can be brought in as well as equal partners. The federalism vs. untary equilibrium point has to be debated and resolved at this stage with future peace, stability and properity of 100 million people in mind.

This should result in a strong party that can snatch votes nationally from rigid groups such as TPLF, OLF, AAPO and even extreme nationalist wings of ARENA, ABN, OFC etc etc

All regions are fertile grounds for such result oriented party as the worsening socio economic fragmentation limits the potential for all groups and individuals without exception.

ሊዋሃድ or ሊዋሃሃድ ? The second verb denotes reciprocity.

Not wise prediction, Eden. No, the new formed party will not be united with EPDRF. Here is why.
First, the two parties fundamentally interpret Ethiopian politics differently. That is not going to change. Yes, some EPDRF members, mostly the Amhara flavor of EPDRF might share the same politics with the new party members than their “own.” But they will not walk out and join the new party leaving EPDRF to hardcore tribalists. That will be a gross miscalculation; it will not happen. Second, EPDRF in its current form is not a united front. It is undergoing political metamorphosis. No political scientis will predict how the party will turn out to be a year from today. Is the change loving EPDRF members will hold on power, or the Sebhat dynasty orchestrated tribalists — not led by Tigreans. That will not sell well — will take over power and Ethiopians will be damned to live the tribal discourse all over again? The chance the tribalists will breathe another political life is slim. However, no political party, especially that opposes of the ethnic drama, will help EPDRF to be saved from dying. That theory might have an audience in the conspiracy theory believers of the online world. Nothing more.

Sam,

Let me add another fundamental reason why EZEMA will not unify with EPRDF. As you have followed the structural principles of this new party, one can only join EZEMA as an individual person at his or her Wereda unit. In other words, the by-laws of EZEMA prohibits any notion of merging with other parties. On the other hand, if EPRDF want to join with EZEMA, then it has to dissolve itself (ራሱን አክስሞ) then its members (EPRDF members) can join EZEMA at their own Wereda unit.

In short, EZEMA is an air proof structure and it is truly a noble innovation.

This is said, let us say following an election, X number of parties hold Y number of seats in the national parliament. At that point, those pro-citizen EPRDF congress people could make alliances and blocks with EZEMA congress reps. That is what Berhanu and Andualem manage. The job of a party leader is to articulate issues and legislations, negotiation and alliances at the legislative, judiciary and executive level of government. They are part whips.

But this discussion raises an important issue for Abiye Team. EPRDF as it currently exists is almost useless for the vision of Abiye and his Agenda. He can't use the current defunct tribal collection to carry out his Ethiopian agenda. So, Abiye has to come up with a truly innovative way of transforming EPRDF into a new kind of party. I think this is where he could use Berhanu's well known expertise in the strategy of disruption. We shall see.

As for EZEMA, all things being equal, it is the best structure Ethiopian has ever experienced for a political organization.
