Ethiopia to swear in new prime minister on April 2 ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s prime minister-elect Abiye Ahmed will be sworn in on Monday, its parliament said, after the ruling coalition chose him to succeed Hailemariam Desalegn as its chairperson.The ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front coalition on Tuesday voted in the 42-year-old, a retired lieutenant colonel from Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, the Oromo, to take over the government. Dr. Abiy has a tall order in front of him to become a successful leader. 1) He needs to earn trust from all including from EPRDfites who did not vote for him and 2) He needs to speak to all Ethiopians in no uncertain term and tell them he will be loyal to all and to the constitution. He must distance and denounce the Cohen's and Jawar's immediately! Peace will not be achieved if such forces have their way!

After a tumultuous two years of deliberation, EPRDF is set to govern the country with a new leader at the helm. Time will tell if the new leadership is up to the task to keep the peace and drive the economic engine that has been lit. Regardless EPRDF must be very proud for the second time the transition of power at the top is peaceful and orderly.This is a testament to the strength of the system in place and kudos to EPRDF member parties! We hope EPRDF has learned the lesson how an inept leadership can destroy a country and an economy! Democracy comes with all kind of side effects!The best thing to do going forward is to strengthen institutions that will monitor or play the check and balance game in any democratic system.
Congratulation Dr. Abiy Ahmed! We know the extremists from diaspora will and have demanded you to do their bidding but you are not their leader nor a regional leader anymore! You are the leader of all Ethiopians now! You need to hear them all! Aigaforum 03-28-18
