The Council of Ministers, in its second emergency meeting today, discussed and passed a resolution regarding the expiration of the state of emergency proclamation No. 5/2022 to protect the country’s existence and sovereignty.
The Council of Ministers declared a state of emergency on January 26, 2012, and the proclamation was presented to the House of Peoples’ Representatives by Proclamation No. 1264. / 2022 is approved and is currently in operation. However, it was necessary to shorten the state of emergency by six months, as the situation that made it necessary to declare a state of emergency had changed and the threat had reached the point where normal law enforcement could be prevented and controlled.
Therefore, in accordance with the provisions of Article 11 (2) of Proclamation No. 1264/2022, the House of Peoples’ Representatives has the power to shorten the period of six months before the expiration of the six-month period if the circumstances leading to the declaration of a state of emergency are changed. The Council of Ministers, after deliberating on the matter, decided to submit the proposal to the House of Peoples’ Representatives.

Is this the cabinet ( executive branch ) of the country ( the people) or r a cabinet that deceivingly changed itself from being the cabinet of TPLF/ EPRDF to the cabinet of OPDO/ OLF/ Prosperity and made things much more deeply horrible ? Needless to say that the latter is the right answer unless we want to deceive ourselves.
It is self -evidently true that this body of dirty politics has passed its decision and has sent it to another body of dirty politics called parliament or house of people’s representatives or another bunch of politically stupid and morally bankrupt cadres.
And it goes without saying that the third branch of government (the judiciary) does play a very, very and very horribly disastrous political orchestration.
I strongly argue that unless this tragically constitutionalized and structured political system that has caused and keep causing an extreme danger not only to the prevalence of human and democratic rights but also to the very lives of the people is forced either to come to the terms of the real sense of democratic change or else to face its own demise by any means appropriate , it will destroy the very social, historical , cultural and moral fabrics of the people to the extent of making things impossible to put together back !
