PM Abiy Ahmed got the vote of almost all EPRDFites with voting right in their 11th congress. This wasn’t the case when he was elected first as chair of the party before seven moths. This means that all he has been doing since he became PM bought him more support also from within the EPRDF itself. This is great for him, for his party and also for the country!
(Fitsum Arega) The historic 11th EPRDF Congress (that has 180 voting members) today elected Dr Abiy Ahmed as Chairperson and Ato Demeke Mekonnen as Deputy Chairperson in a secret ballot. Dr Abiy Ahmed will lead the ruling party until the next Congress.
