Tigray regional state is poised to have a meeting next week. The purpose is to evaluate and approve six months performance report, according to a report by Fana Broadcasting Corporation (FBC).

The meeting which is said to be the 14th regular session of the 5th year term of the regional council, is expected to approve legislation related to free social programs to vulnerable sections of the society including children and those who are Abled Differently.

The ruling coalition, EPRDF, executive committee completed its meeting yesterday and the statement it issued after the meeting in which it unveiled lack of unity of thought and action within the coalition.

Influential Tigray People’s Liberation Front leaders have been crying foul over the reform measures undertaken by prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration.

For leaders like Sebhat Nega,who is essentially the ideologue and one of the founders of the party, ongoing change in Ethiopia is divorced from “revolutionary democracy” ideology and “Developmental State” principles. He even went to the extent of saying that he is not sure if EPRDF is alive or not.
