Populism Is Not Fascism
But It Could Be a Harbinger
As right-wing movements have mounted increasingly strong challenges to political establishments across Europe and North America, many commentators have drawn parallels to the rise of fascism during the 1920s and 1930s. Last year, a French court ruled that opponents of Marine Le Pen, the leader of Frances National Front, had the right to call her...
Ethiopia may not be in Europe or North America but it surley looks like it is becoming a victim of populist leaders!

Emergency Decree and EPRDF Govt--
According to our reliable source the passage of the emergency decree was a must for the government and the government could not be happier with the overwhelming success. The success of its own was a defeat of the extremists and some of the EPRDFites! Our source told us there was a feeling of dismay some of the EPRDF member parliamentarians joined hands to stop the passage!
Our source told us the decree is an instrument to enforce and maintain law and order. Unless the country is stabilized, the country cannot move forward with its political and other development agendas. The next step is, of course, completing the necessary preparations that will enable authorities to execute the decree in the entire country. It is then after that the government will be able to enforce the decree.
EPRDF is expected to start its own internal meeting to evaluate the evaluation conducted by each party. There must be a consensus on all evaluations made after EPRDF's evaluation said our source. Without such agreement, no one can say for sure what the future holds for EPRDF. The upcoming discussion will decide on matters of PM election but again there is no rush talking about the election now!
As you all know much international news outlet have been saying EPRDF will elect its chairman and PM this coming week.According to our source, there is no rush to nominate a PM! First thing first, EPRDF must reach a consensus on all issues raised during the deep renewal campaign and its outcome. It is only then the issue of an election will be discussed!
Our source told us also the extremists plan for some time to bring mayhem and destruction to Addis have been thwarted. Authorities are well prepared to foil any attempt going forward thanks to the decree! -- Aigaforum March 04, 2018

Under a new state of emergency, Ethiopia is on the brink of crisis, again

Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday that the state of emergency is necessary...
It used to be the lords of poverty that always hammer Ethiopia with all kind of negative news every time the country faced drought! With nearly double-digit economic growth registered each year for the past 13 years and the many drought years it has overcome on its own, the lords of poverty are nowhere to be seen these days. Kudos to the late PM Meles Government!
Today, instead of the lords of poverty people, we have the color revolution proponents who are having a field day with the recent challenges Ethiopia is facing. This will pass too, by the way, mark my word!
The thing is why is the Ethiopian government ignoring the role of Shaibia and Egypt in the current disturbance? Why is the government not able to see the two are working hand and glove with people from within EPRDF circle? EPRDF must clean itself to save Ethiopia! Zeru Hagos 03/03/18
