For ten years now, I hope to tell my grandfather that Ethiopia has once appeared in bloody blood. Many believe that ethnic extremism would capture the day and that the state is intended for violent chaos. In the end, the visionary leadership of Abye Ahmed and Team Lema turned out to be wrong.
The leap back to 2018, the Addis Ababians (and the diaspora) remain largely daring dr. Abye and Team Lema (is it really a group?)
… And why dr. Abye and Team Lema remain so charming?
One of the main reasons is that these co-workers with some miraculous acts, not only defeated and persecuted TPLF's cats and mines, but especially Abye Ahmed (AA), had a longing to do what no typical Prime Minister would dare to do … manage the revolution; and he did so with so much style, sophistication, skill and wit. Perhaps he announced the end of the period.
Let me give you five of my favorite homes so far: peace with Eritrea, the opening of a political space for all, freedom of the press, a ministerial team that is equally balanced for men and women for the first time in the history of the state and pushes a stunt with rebels.
No, dear readers of this colleague (AA) can walk along the water and can perform miracles. He literally tries to convince us that the government is now a saint, that the (government) is afraid of us … to citizens? But we are not fools. At the end of the day, when we know that the government uses a large stick, we want to cover it with sweet monks,
In any case, there is nothing wrong if citizens begin to think of Ethiopia as a possible success story if they understand that TPLF's transition remains uncompleted. Reforms take time, and progress is dependent on patient, prudent and honest offers. Submitting offers for win-win is the only way to know what people want … and the only way to get them. Initiatives generated by victories and losing governments are a trigger for growth and progress.
In the meantime, if you want to establish the crown in 2020, there are three questions that Abye Ahmed must take into account before the time runs out:
1. Establish a special committee for electoral reform, which will mainly consult the Ethiopian countries from north to south and from east to west. The aim is to improve the representativeness of our political system, to ensure that the proposed system works efficiently and equitably for all peoples and nationalities in the country. The Committee should, inter alia, address issues of public funding for political parties, identify and carry out a study on feasible alternative voting systems that would replace the system of the former past, develop cases for or against parliamentary democracy, examine compulsory voting, formulate E-consultations on electoral reform , to look at Ethiopians living abroad, and so on. and more. It's a big challenge to try to figure out a system where the plusi prevail over minuses.
2. Establish a working group to identify measures to address government regulations that are unnecessarily burdensome, complicated, redundant, or duplicates for the release of business restructuring. It is clear that companies in Ethiopia are passing too many regulations, and in many cases these regulations impose excessive and unnecessary costs for businesses. The main focus can not be on politics as such, but on the possible unjustified costs of doing business in the implementation of policy by regulations. In short, such a working group should have the task of identifying a forward-looking agenda that contains about 80-100 reforms in existing regulations that would encourage growth. In addition, the task force should also be advised on how the processes and institutions responsible for regulation could be improved in order to avoid the same problems that simply recur.
3. Reform of the state's judicial structure. At this stage it is useful to involve federal and regional governments directly in the creation of a national judicial system. And since it is essential to maintain control over the quality of judges and the possibility of patronage for prestigious judicial positions in the highest courts in the country, the government (regional and federal) should agree to allow the federal government to appoint judges to its superior courts – this is superior and courts of appeal in each region. Consequently, a regional judicial system will be established in each regional country, in which lower courts – where the majority of the rule of law deals with it – will be led by provincial judges. In the same province, higher courts dealing with legal proceedings concerning serious crimes, civil actions with amounts above a certain limit and complaints from the lower courts in the province are controlled by federal judges.
Anyway, a man knows what to do and how to do it …
Stay on the line!
