[I respect Prof Teshome but couldn't follow his argument for the need of a constitutional reform? Every time OlF sneezes or Berhanu Nega shouts with his fishka from Asmara do we have to blame the constitution? Instead of asking EPRDF to do this and that first win an election come rain or shine! Then trigger the constitutional reform as a majority party! Otherwise asking EPRDF to do this and that is simply an extension of the old guard's mentality--that the boys and girls of the EPRDF are goat keepers who know nothing how to govern a country. I thought such thought was defeated fare and square over the last 25 years! Zeru Hagos 01-22-16].

European Parliament "resolution"(?) on the situation in Ethiopia
We thought the extremists have given up bothering the US Congress to pass any kind of resolution to help their cause against the Ethiopian government and instead have opted to try the " Haz ki Hiz"(Armed struggle) with the help of Ginbot 7! Little did we know they were also going to try the EU Parliament with the help of Anna Gomez! We hate to dampen their spirit but this too will be futile! Dr Tedros and his team should make sure the EU should not listen to OLF and its evangelical friends in Europe. We know the old lady is not going to win the EU Parliament heart! If there is to be a commission that is empowered to investigate it should be the government's own commission!
