The first party debate organized by Fana Broadcasting Corporation was held today with a focus on federalism and diversity.
Leaders of Prosperity, EZMA, Hibr Ethiopia and AEPR reflected their parties’ position at the forum.
Fisseha, who represented the Prosperity Party, be patient. He said the TPLF has been destroying the principles of federalism, self-government and solidarity for the common good.
He said the Prosperity Party will correct these mistakes and build a federalism system in which the people’s language and identity are respected.
Prof. Berhanu Nega, who represented Ethiopians on the occasion of Social Justice, said: He said ethnic federalism has failed to achieve diversity.
Professor Berhanu: “It has resulted in the loss of many lives and property in the region,” he said.
Instead of bringing national consensus, the federal system has made the states more at war with each other, he said.
