ARENA objects Administrative Boundaries and Identity Commission

During its regular meeting in Mekelle yesterday, Tigray For Democracy and Sovereignty (Arena), an opposition party established by former members of TPLF announced that the party does not accept the establishment of the Administrative Boundaries and Identity Commission. The party explained its reasons based on the constitution. The commission was established recently and officially announced its members last week. ARENA party isn’t the first to officially oppose the commission’s establishment. Tigray Region Council rejected the establishment with a unanimous vote last week. The Administrative Boundary and Identity Commission has faced challenges ever since parliament passed the draft. Much of the controversy arose as claims that the commission's establishment contradicts the constitution. The commission will be solving issues related to self-administration, identity questions, and other similar issues. It is known that conflicts have been occurring among peoples of Ethiopia for years because of different societal and political reasons.
