Ethiopian Ruling Party Confirms Hailemariam as Meles’s Successor.


By William Davison – Sep 15, 2012 

Ethiopia’s ruling party confirmed acting Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn as the successor to the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi.

Meles, who led Ethiopia for 21 years and who oversaw one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, died on Aug. 20 from an infection contracted while he was recovering from an undisclosed illness. Hailemariam, Meles’s deputy in the Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front and a former foreign minister, took over in an acting capacity the next day.

“Out of three candidates, Hailemariam has got the unanimous vote of council members and will serve as chairman of EPRDF and Demeke Mekonen will serve as well as deputy chairperson of EPRDF,” Communications Minister Bereket Simon said in the capital, Addis Ababa. “Whoever’s elected as chair and deputy chair of party will automatically be the nominees for the premiership and deputy premiership. So both Mr. Hailemariam and Mr. Demeke will represent the party and be candidates and be presented to parliament for approval when it starts its formal session in early October.”

Ethiopia, the continent’s second-most populous nation, is a key U.S. ally in its battle against al-Qaeda in the region. Ethiopian troops in December invaded Somalia for the second time in four years to join the battle against al-Shabaab, al-Qaeda’s Somalia affiliate.

The federal parliament, which has only one opposition lawmaker out of 547, is expected to swear in Hailemariam on Oct. 8, Bereket said.

At Meles’s funeral on Sept. 2, Hailemariam vowed to continue with his state-led development model that channeled loans, aid, investment and domestic revenue into infrastructure, industry and public services. The result was growth that averaged 10 percent in the past eight years, according to the government.

Human-rights groups criticized the government for cracking down on civil liberties and introducing anti-terrorism laws in 2009 that have been used to jail opposition politicians and journalists.

The EPRDF is a coalition of four parties representing the Amhara people, the Oromo, the Tigray and a collection of southern groups. Meles was leader of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, which led the ouster of a military junta in 1991, while Hailemariam hails from the southern bloc. His deputy is from the Amhara National Democratic Movement.

The EPRDF’s council, which has 45 representatives from each bloc, chose Meles’s successor from the 36-member executive committee of the party. Ethiopia’s next parliamentary elections are scheduled for 2015.

Presidential candidates make speeches to new Somali MPs.

Presidential candidates make speeches to new Somali MPs.

The recently sworn in Somali parliament members has on Friday and Saturday held special session to listen to the speeches of the country’s presidential candidates barely hours to the date set for the historic presidential vote to be conducted in Somalia for the first time in two decades.

Sunday, September 09, 2012

Twenty-five qualified candidates are set to compete in the elections and were allotted 20 minutes each to present to parliament their political philosophies. In his speech former Somali Premier Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo who enjoys majority public support warned legislators against electing leaders on the basis of improving their political future.

The presidential election has been delayed several times having already missed an August 20 deadline. Outgoing Somali leader who has been in power since 2009 is seeking a second term in office, promising MPs that once elected, Somali people will soon have the chance to elect their own leaders unlike the current trend where elders select the president on behalf of the people.

For one to be declared winner, the candidate needs to take two-thirds of the vote to win outright, otherwise the top four candidates will go into a second round, with a third round of the final two where the winner is selected by a simple majority. Aspirants are optimistic that Somali MPs will elect effective leaders who will drive Somalia out of poverty and illiteracy.

Former Somali premier Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmajo, , Outgoing Somali Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Ali, , Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, outgoing president Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, Mohamed Siad Barre son of the ousted Somali president Siad Bare are considered the favorites in thepolls.

The UN Special envoy for Somalia in an open statement earlier this week called on the Somali parliament not to feel bound by any obligation other than the interests of the country and the Somali people and at the same time choose the candidate who will be honest and effective in leading the country with a vision appropriate for the next four years of transformation and peace-building in Somalia.

“Presidential candidates are making speeches to the members of the new Somali federal parliament who are set to choose a new president on September 10th. However the end of an eight year old Transition Government means little change for the Somali people as the country will remain ruled for the coming 4 years by a selected rather than an elected government”
