Ethiopia: EPRDF Executive Committee to Meet On Sunday

Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) Executive Committee is set to meet on Sunday to evaluate the party's performance and make decisions on key national agendas.

Shiferaw Shigute, EPRDF Office Head told journalists that as per the party's deep reform launched last year, the Committee would also reevaluate member party's report and the measures they have been taking to bring about change.

Concerning the current situations in the country and resignation of the Prime Minister, Shiferaw said, "It is not the first time that EPRDF has faced such challenges."

Meanwhile, Shiferaw also noted that the Front has managed to pass through different challenges with its effective leadership.

He also emphasized that the ordinary session of the Executive Committee, which is usually held on the first January was delayed because of the instability in some parts of the country.

"However, the committee will meet to come up with sustainable solutions for the problems," he stressed.

He also underscored that: "There is no difference in stance regarding the State of Emergency among member parties of the Front.

"The meeting is only set to evaluate the actual situation and we also have to bring solutions for our leadership gaps."

The Office Head noted that there might be certain differences among Members of Parliament regarding the implementation of and actions taken during the SoE.

The EPRDF's Council meeting, which would be held following the Executive Committee's meeting, will elect its new party Chairman and hence the Prime Minister.
