The region faced a security crisis following the coup. After the executive committee meeting, Amhara Democratic Party (ADP) has nominated and appointed Ato Temesgen Tiruneh. The region also appointed a new security head and new judges. In this regard, Agegnehu Teshager is appointed as the head of the region’s security; whereas 230 new judges were also appointed.
