We won’t acknowledge the commission’s decision - NAMA

The National Movement of Amhara (NAMA) released a public statement to announce the party’s stand on the recently established Administrative Boundaries and Identity Affairs Commission. The National Movement of Amhara (NAMA), a pro-Amhara ethnic nationalist movement which was founded in 2018 with a goal to represent the people of the Amhara ethnic group agrees with the fact that the commission is a necessity due to the country’s current situation. It also promises better democratic procedures. But the party strongly opposed and criticized the parliament’s procedures on selecting members for the commission. According to the statement released by the party, the appointed members do not represent Amhara’s interest and gave recommendations. It is to remember that the House of Peoples’ Representatives has been evaluating the commission and gained approval from members. 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.
