Marara Guddina: Today I met former President Obasanjo and his team members, Dr. Greg Mills, Ms. Karen etc. We had a discussion of an hour regarding the elections and the future direction of Ethiopian politics.
 
I told them not to take the election very seriously as it can only be a political theatre and cannot deliver the three greatest needs of the country:
 
1. Durable peace and stability,
 
2. Ensure the birth of Democratic Ethiopia even after three thousand years and
 
3. Meaningful economic development.
 
I also told them to advise the Ethiopian Prime Minister to avert the looming civil war – to immediately move to an all Inclusive National Dialogue that can take us to an all inclusive interim government, which prepares the country to a credible ‘free and fair’ elections within a year. I have underlined to them that without a genuine national dialogue based on a common road map, the hoped for Ethiopia’s democratic transition can only be: a transition from crisis, through crisis to crisis.
