PM after Election 2020: Oromo Democrat Abiy Ahmed vs Oromo Republican Lamma Magarsa?
It is interesting to observe that the two Oromo leaders (Abiy and Lamma) are politically orienting differently. It looks like that Dr. Abiy is more friendly to the Ethiofederalists like ECS of Dr. Berihanu, whereas Ob. Lamma seems to stay loyal to the Ethnofederalists like OFC of Dr. Marara. The political spectrum in Ethiopia (Great Oromia) is concentrating at the middle. Both the Derg style ethiofascists and the Woyane type ethnofascists have lost influence never to come back. At last, freedom fighters including both ethiofederalists and ethnofederalists won the struggle. Ethiocenteralists, who wished to forge unitary Ethiopia, already gave up their goal and moved to the middle left position of ethiofederalists. Similarly, ethnoseparatists nowadays seem to accept the middle right vision of ethnofederalists. In short, there are only two camps of opposition against the incumbent administration, which seems to entertain both ideologies (ethiofederalism and ethnofederalism.) Oromos prefer either of the two types of federalisms based on the sort of Sovereignty they wish for Oromia according to the version of Oromo history they have in mind. Oromo democrats like Abiy are open for ethiofederalism with risk of dismantling Gadaa Oromia and Oromo republicans like Lamma insist on preserving ethnofederalism with risk of dismantling Great Oromia (democratic Ethiopia).
