One of Ethiopia’s main opposition party Unity for Democracy and Justice (UDJ) elected new president after Gizachew Shiferaw (Engineer) resigned from his post.
Belay Fekadu is named the new president of UDJ.
UDJ was indulged in acrimonious like controversy soon after Gizachew Shiferaw, now former president of UDJ, won election.
There is optimism among observers and supporters of UDJ party that the new president will revamp the party to create meaningful peaceful opposition movement against the ruling TPLF dominated EPRDF party.
It is not clear as to what kind of peaceful struggle strategy could bring about a significant challenge against the ruling party which resorted to total tyranny like governance style for months now.
