Ethiopia state of emergency has full public backing – PM tells MPs

(Jan 13, 2017,  (Addis Ababa))--Ethiopians are fully in support of the current state of emergency which is being observed in the country according to Prime Minister (PM) Hailemarian Desalegn.

This was part of the major highlights of the PM’s address to the Members of Parliament (MPs) when he appeared before them on Thursday to answer a broad range of questions on matters affecting the country.

He reiterated the position of the Command Post administering the 6-month curfew that it had brought about calm and stability to the country. He alluded further that its success was because it earned the full backing of the public across the country.

He added that it helped to foil the plans of anti-peace forces and foreign hands who want to ruin the country’s peace. Ethiopia continues to accuse some of its neighbours of being behind anti-government protests that started late 2015 and continued into 2016.

The PM further disclosed that in the area of political reforms, the ruling Ethiopia Peoples Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) was liaising with affiliate parties to make it a national agenda. Read more from Africa News »
