Preparing for transition from the Woyanne era is long overdue

Preparing for transition from the Woyanne era is long overdueEthiopia is currently exposed to extreme danger as a result of 20 years of misrule by the Woyanne/EPRDF regime. Woyanne’s ethnic policy in particular is an existential threat to our country. However, there is a way we can protect and preserve Ethiopia’s freedom and unity. Tinsae Ethiopia Patriotic Union believes that we must setup a transitional council in exile that will act as a caretaker government once we overthrow Meles Zenawi’s junta.

Government in exile is not a new concept. During the Fascist Italy’s occupation of Ethiopia, there was an Ethiopian government in exile led by Emperor HaileSelassie. Over the past decade, several Ethiopian scholars, writers, and organizations have proposed such an idea. Recently, Syria’s opposition has setup a transitional council in exile. Preparing for transition from the Woyanne rule is a major component of Tinsae Ethiopia’s political program.

The Ethiopian National Transition Council that is now proposed by the founder of Unity University, Dr Fisseha Eshetu, is a workable idea and Tinsae Ethiopia would like to be one of the first political parties to fully support it.
We believe that forming a transitional arrangement such as proposed by Dr Fisseha is imperative if we want to thwart the grave danger that our country is currently facing. We call on all patriotic Ethiopians around the world to rally behind the idea of forming a transitional council.
