True character arises from a deeper well than religion. It is the internalization of moral principles of a society, augmented by those tenets personally chosen by the individual, strong enough to endure through trials of solitude and adversity. The principles are fitted together into what we call integrity, literally the integrated self, wherein personal decisions feel good and true. Character is in turn the enduring source of virtue. It stands by itself and excites admiration in others. by Edward O. Wilson

Bulcha is busy forming Medrek. They don’t even have a minimum program to run on. What they chose is blame EPRDF who is ROARING to election with superior organizational capacity added with the benefits of the incumbency - and a tangible gain for the people in the last 5 years. If the good for nothing opposition chose to throw the towel a year early, it is for fear of the inevitable Election Day TKO!
Prime Minister Meles Zenawi continues his tour to meet ordinary citizens. In all the engagements the most common issue raised is development. This by itself shows that EPRDF's campaign that Ethiopia has no other worst enemy than poverty is working. Gone are the days where the public can be hoodwinked by "ere goraw" slogans! All the fledgling economic indicators that shows Ethiopia pulling away from her slum is another pointer indeed Ethiopia is on the move and who to thank except the farsighted government of Ethiopia-The EPRDF!
