The Ethiopian National Transitional Council (ENTC) has presented a proposal to Ethiopian opposition groups to come together and form a transitional government. ENTC is also calling for public discussion on the process of transitioning Ethiopia to a multiparty democracy. The fact that Ethiopia has a new prime minister is a positive development, but no one should have an illusion that the ruling party, EPRDF, will open up the political space in the country, unless it is forced to do so. The creation of a transitional government can play a major role in forcing EPRDF to come to the negotiation table. Click here to read ENTC’s statement that was issued on Sunday.
