Amhara Regional Council senior cadres made a decision yesterday against the decision of House Federation of Ethiopia, which authorized all Kemant areas to be incorporated into planned Kemants Self-rule. The House of Federation passed this resolution on June 24, 2015, overriding the regional council bill issued on March 13, 2015.
But, in response, yesterday, Amhara Regional Council cadres passed the decision for the second time just to limit Kemants self-rule only in two woredas (counties) in contrary to the resolution of the House Federation. Regional senior cadres say, “constitution is not Gospel” it is political agreement and conditional to situations.
It was interesting many of council members from South Wollo, North Shewa, East Gojjam and other areas are against the cadres’ unconstitutional moves. The speakers expressed boldly their position; they said they did not trust the regional cadres because they misled the council members more than twice. In effect, the speakers are in favor of the House decision. The names of the speakers against the cadres move will be published as soon as available.
