New party vows to reconcile Meles and Mengistu

Posted by Ethio Tribune on June 30, 2012

A new political party in the making, which has a stated goal of playing reconciliation politics among past and present governments, hopes to finalize its preparation and obtain registration certificate from Nation Electoral of Board of Ethiopia (NEBE) and held its inaugural conference by the coming September. According to a press release sent to The Reporter, the Ethiopian New Generation Reconciliation for Unity and Democracy Party aka New Generation Party (NGP) has managed to secure 1500 signatures from individuals residing in five different regions comprising of Addis Ababa, Oromia, Dire Dawa, South Nations Nationalities and Peoples’ and Amhara.

The party, which vowed to be first party in Ethiopia to reconcile different political views and governments, says it is inspired by South African’s Nelson Mandela and his famous reconciliation process. It hopes to commence its political life working hard to bring together former president Mengistu Hailemariam and Prime Minister Meles Zenawi in a spirit of reconciliation and peace. The press release also indicated that the highlight of the long journey to national reconciliation process in Ethiopia would be the two leaders coming together and shaking hands.

“We will then promote the two leaders to be winners of Nobel Prize for peace, love and reconciliation efforts,” the party says. “And that day will be Ethiopia’s political renaissance.”

Claiming to have membership which is predominantly young, NGP also pledged to be the ‘gear shifter’ in what it has called a stagnated party politics in Ethiopia. The party’s main strategy is to achieve its political end through love and constructive engagement “and most certainly not enmity and antagonism”.

Headed by Assefa Getachew, Solomon Tafese and Megene Mate, the party organizing committee says that it is inspired by the winning spirit of athletes Haile Gebressilase and Kenyan Paul Tergat.
