“If the government is going to postpone the general election … it will anger the public,” Professor Merera Gudina, Chairman of Oromo Federalist Congress.
He Continued, “Once the public begins to express its anger … no one will have the means or the power to control it.”
Dr. Debretsion Gebremichael, Chairman of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), and vice president of Tigray regional state, also warned that postponement could have “grave consequences.” The TPLF is part of the governing coalition.
“Not holding the election on time … is unconstitutional,” he told a television station. “It means the Ethiopia government after 2020 is illegitimate.”
Mr. Belete Mola, Vice President of National Movement of Amhara, said the government was playing with fire. “This is an illegitimate government and it has no mandate to postpone the election.”
