Neamin Zeleke, former Executive Director of Arbegnoch Ginbot 7, has been regarded as a dedicated leader by many. His commitment to the cause had led to his exile to Eritrea in 2009 when the then Ethiopian parliament classified his party as a terrorist organization. On March 18, Neamin announced that he had parted ways with Arbegnoch Ginbot 7 due to a disagreement on the structure after the party has returned to Ethiopia. The party hasn’t given any statement on the matter and has proceeded to restructure itself to form alliances with other political parties. Many are expecting the alliance to yield one of the strongest political parties in Ethiopia. Mereja TV contacted Neamin Zeleke to weigh on the restructure.
