Drawing on the first-hand experience in the opposition politics and as a student of political science, Dr. The multiparty democracy, a federal system of governance and the ending of the command economy introduced by EPRDF miserably failed, Merera contended. They have lived under the domination of the TPLF. Their life was like that. All animals are equal but some are more equal than others. So until last year, they were in one way or another pushed around by their more dominant group in the EPRDF.

No less importantly, central to the current crisis of the Ethiopian State is ethnic federalism, which he described as neither federalism nor democracy. So what we had was the British type of indirect rule. Mogzit Astedader, as we say in Ethiopian language, somebody who is not able to define his own livelihood, supported by others kind of thing. That type pf federalism failed to resolve the historical marginalization of some groups, such as the Oromos, much of the south.

Secondly, it could not help one way or another, it created a new type of relationship between the various peoples of Ethiopia. It means, what we call in political science, privatization of the state, serving the interest of one group.

That is why you see massive corruption. Merera also talked about the non-competitive elections held from — , which he described were neither free nor fair. So the people of Ethiopia have been voting, the ruling party counting. Especially after the elections, EPRDF has introduced a lot of unconstitutional laws, political registration law, media law, anti-terrorism law, electoral law of conduct, all kind of things. These were all aimed at fostering the domination of one group. It has encouraged the rise of a totalitarian state, which has caused crisis and widespread anti-government protests in the country, that have persisted for four years.

Merera praised some of policies and strides made by the new administration, such as releasing thousands of political prisoners, including himself has been freed after more than a year in detention, opening political space to political parties inside the country, initiating several legal reform, that include electoral law, anti-terrorism law, civil society law, national dialogue.

They are accusing the central government of targeting the Tigrayans. In fact, a sort of a cold war is emerging between the two. Some sort of disarmament, negotiations is going on. The elders are trying to do what they could but it might take a long way to properly handle that situation.

It took about a year, still no tangible whatever on the ground. So this slowness of the reform, especially at a local level, nothing has been changed. The old robbers are still there. The criminals are still there. People in some areas are fed up to live with them, so which can invite trouble.

Merera, is the state of the economy, especially youth unemployment. That is a critical case. Youth unemployment is very massive. Merera underscored the enormous task ahead, saying they current EPRDF leaders were not elected by the people of Ethiopia. Unless EPRDF one way or another seriously take up this change, allow the changes to take its own course, then if it is trying to reverse the change, block the change, it is going to be a disaster for Ethiopia.

What we need to do it to democratize it as it lacks democratic content. They have the means, the money. They are in the military security structure. So, you would not simply wish away them. Otherwise, if they push this country into a further confrontation, state collapse like Somalia or Rwanda is a likely scenario.
