The ongoing reform is a steppingstone to form well-organized, competing political parties that have defined political programs and strategies to play their role in nation building, according to party representatives.
It was recalled that 107 Ethiopian political parties have signed a code of conduct on March 14, 2019. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed recently called upon political parties to merge and form strong, united, and competent.
President of Semaywei Party, Yeshiwas Assefa told ENA that for Ethiopians to realize their long term desire for full-fledged change, they have to be governed by the parties which come to power through votes in free and fair elections.
For such target to be a reality, there have to be well organized political parties with clear policies and strategies that could lead the general public, according to Yeshiwas.
