Interview with Arena Public Relation officer Ato Andom - On Election 2007(EC).


In Western Democracy, during election time, politicians almost always stretch any slightest negative truth of their opponents and use it in a negative campaign to undermine their opponents! We hope Ato Andom as a liberal democracy follower is not using such campaign habits when passing the few alleged "wrong doings" that were refuted by the relevant officials in this interview! Ethiopians should be allowed to vote the best candidate based on merits not based on false and divisive campaigns! We have brought to you this interview since Arena is the only opposition party with a long shot to win any meaningful parliament seats in Tigrai.

Ethiopia, Long Mired in Poverty, Rides an Economic Boom
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — The bulldozers, tractors and cranes are busy day and night, paving new roads, building tall glass buildings and constructing a new light rail system to stitch together the city’s ends...[...the argument "democracy or development" is a false misunderstood argument when it comes to Ethiopia. In Ethiopia where abject poverty is strangling the people democracy is translated to food self sufficiency and a better tomorrow--hopeful country to live!. Ethiopians are living in a hopeful country and every day becoming self sufficient. Therefore, though people show contempt with the way things are in some areas, they are happy! What should worry us all is if the current bureaucracy and bureaucrats are ready to lead and manage the fast pace of economic development and all the demands that arise because of it.It is amazing most people we talk want to be come business owners! Such huge desire coupled with some of the means people are using to become rich are causing frictions with the government and its institutions everyday! The government wants to isolate the "rent seekers" and in the process some good and honest people are getting squeezed! Also, besides the issue with rent seekers, the huge demand by city dwellers all over the country is something to worry for bureaucrats and officials!]
