#Ethiopia: In an emergency meeting it held today, the #Wolayita zone council unanimously approved to take its constitutional request for statehood to the House of Federation (HoF).

It blamed the Southern region’s council for failing to forward the zonal request to the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia (#NEBE).

It is to be remembered that the #Wolayita zone council first submitted the letter to the council of #SNNPRS requesting the zone’s rights for self-administration a year ago in December 2018 (see letter). Today’s emergency meeting by the zonal council was conveyed to evaluate this year old request.
