Ethiopia Reinstates State of Emergency, Again




The Council of Ministers (CoM) has declared a state of emergency today, for the second time in a year. The decree was made public this evening after ministers discussed on the details of the bill, although the decision to reinstate it was made by the executive committee members of the ruling EPRDF a day before. The last one was phased out in August 2017 after staying for 10 months. The announcement today also comes a day after Prime Minister Hailemeriam Desalegn tendered his resignation, which was accepted by his party and the EPRDF.
