A transitional government is an emergency governmental authority set up to manage a political transition generally in the cases of new nations or following the collapse of the previous governing administration. Provisional governments are generally appointed and frequently arise, either during or after civil or foreign wars. Transitional governments maintain power until a new government can be appointed by a regular political process, which is generally an election. They may be involved with defining the legal structure of subsequent regimes, guidelines related to human rights and political freedoms, the structure of the economy, government institutions, and international alignment.
Ethiopian National Movement (ENM), on its press conference on Thursday, September 5, 2019, called on the government and all concerned bodies to establish a transitional government so that Ethiopia could get rid of its multi-dynamic problems in politics, economy, and societal wellbeing. This creates a huge talking point this week.
