THE NEW PRIME MINISTER AFTER THE ELECTIONS IN 2015 WILL BE FROM TIGRAY – The TPLF factions have finally reconciled.

A former advisor to the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi and ex-member of the central committee of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) Bitew Belay has acted, according to our sources, as an intermediary between the two TPLF factions, the Mekelle group and the Addis Ababa group. Belay was sacked and indicted for corruption in 2001 during the purge against Seye Abraha and TPLF dissidents. He has now moved into the world of business. Like many other former TPLF leaders, he fears that internal dissent in the party could lead to diluting its hold on Ethiopian politics and administration. Because of its internal divisions, the Mekelle group led by the president of the TPLF and the Tigray Regional State, Abaye Woldu, had to make concessions to the Addis Ababa faction headed by Debretsion Gebremichael, the current Deputy Prime Minister. The two factions have now decided to put their quarrels behind them and join forces so that the next prime minister in 2015 could be a member of the TPLF, or at least a Tigrayan.
