Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is scheduled to engage Ethiopian Opposition party leaders, contending party leaders as government calls them now, tomorrow.
The office of the prime minister announced invitation to the meeting on social media platforms and media outlets when it called up on opposition leaders to register for the meeting either by making a phone call or sending e-mail through the Prime Minister’s Press Secretariat.
The meeting will take place tomorrow but it is unclear if it is going to be televised. Agenda of the meeting is not disclosed but there are speculations that the next general election and the election board could be among the items for discussion.
Last week, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration secured parliamentary approval to appoint Birtukan Mideksa, who used to be an opposition leader and political prisoner, as the new election board chairperson. She is the first election board official not affiliated with the ruling coalition, directly or indirectly.
Meanwhile, the press secretariat in the prime minister’s office held an informal consultative meeting today with heads and representatives of media agencies, according to information from the office of the Office of the Prime Minister. The meeting was intended to update media heads and representatives “on the current structure and new working procedures currently being put in place including setting up PMO Correspondents.”
