Leading dissident says transitional document in pipeline
By ESAT News (October 7, 2016)
The leader of Patriotic Ginbot 7 said that a transitional document is being formulated in discussion with other opposition groups and stakeholders in a bid to create a common understanding among all stakeholders after the fall of the TPLF regime.
Prof. Berhanu Nega said in a video message he sent from his base in Eritrea that in order to create a truly democratic system of government it is imperative that political parties and civic organizations as well as leaders of the ongoing uprising and all stakeholders arrive at a consensus on the future direction of the country.
He pointed out that the future government of Ethiopia should be able to entertain the diverse views and demands of the people and will never be one that stands for the interests of a selected few.
Prof. Berhanu noted that a considerable number of people from northern Ethiopia have dust off their rifles and joined the armed struggle to remove the autocratic minority regime.
No matter how the regime in power tries to stop the resistance with brute force, change is inevitable, he noted.
