According to reliable sources in Addis Ababa, the National Board of Electoral Election (NEBE) will meet for the first time on Friday August 8th 2008 to discuss about the application for party registration that Unity for Democracy and Justice Party (UDJP) submitted.

It is to be recalled that the registrar of the NEBE has asked for 10 minor corrections to be made on the applications. The UDJP then resubmitted the application making appropriate corrections on items that needed to be corrected and more clarifications on those that were not corrected.

The issues of using the name “Andenet (Unity)” as a single word and putting the green-yellow-red color on the party logo were two of the ten items that were flagged by the NEBE’s registrar.

The UDJ in its re-submission did not make any changes on these two items. However, It attached more addendum that makes the legal argument to why using the name “andenet” as a single word and the green-yellow-red color on the logo, do not violate guidelines and statutes of the NEBE.

    As if it makes any difference!
    Please stop demoralizing the people. Perhaps as expected and as Prof. Isaac said – the NEBE gives the permition to the UDJP to function legally – what would you do? Get ready to participate in the 2010 election based on the TPLF conditions and grab the 10 or 15 sits allocated for the UDJP and make the TPLF legalize.
    What a shame!

    Please Ethiopians, let us not waste time on so called non-violent struggle. Let us pick up our guns and fight the genocidal regime of Meles. The guy has said it so many times that if you want the power it would be on his dead body, infact he did not get it peacefully. If you folks need evidence that Meles would not give up the power peacefully reread his speech of the millinium and the war documentary that followed for almost ten months on Ethiopian television. What that mean was ” here is how we get the power and if you want to get it you know what to do.”

    Despite my respect to Prof Mesfin, I disagree with his stand. I am doubtful whether he is capable of doing constructive in dislodging Weyane. Ethiopia is in complex mess. He was not able to solve disagreement of people around his circle. I was expecting from him bring all together for common good. It was surprising to me seeing him creating his own faction.

    Now we have, to me
    1 Hailu Shaul and his group- in dead end politically.
    2 Prof. Mesfin group- day dreamers
    3. Ginbot 7 – the architect for Kinijit demise/ untrust worthy
    4.EPRP – Stubborn and clueless

    Ethiopia is in big trouble…

    This annoncement by abugida as a media for promoting UDJP and further allowing for comments brings up the cause (both external and internal)for the demise of Kinijit, which ever of the four that galvanize the Ethiopian people in its organiazation and mobilization to a peacefull struggle in collaboration with EPRP, EPPF and other democratic movements, and organizations, it will prevail. Irrespective of the fact UDJP as a high jacker of Kinijit is promoted at Abugida website. Nevertheless, it serves as a scrutiny mechanism by the diaspora to know and understand the agenda from their policy statements in the diaspora. Therefore, by reading and listening into the various website, the diaspora could sort out which of parties mentioned above are genuine and which are not. We have the capacity to discern the truth from fake ideas, analyze and synthesise information delivered to us, thanks to the internet.
