Amhara regional council has approved Temesgen Tiruneh as the new president of the region on Monday. He is replacing slain president of the region who held the position only for about four months, Dr. Ambachew Mekonnen – one of the leading figures within what is now Amhara Democratic Party who played a leading role for the collapse of TPLF dominated EPRDF.
