The Africa Confidential Interview

AC: What is the EPRDF [the ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front] doing to prepare for the elections? Are there any new strategies?

Meles:
We have developed a draft strategy which was discussed by the committee of the leadership. The expectation is that the larger body of the leadership would discuss it sometime in August, possibly endorse it with modifications, which would then make it possible for us to start preparing for the elections in perhaps September or October. The draft strategy is available and, as I said, we hope that by September or October we will start seriously to prepare for the elections

Thought for Today

Globalization is not happening only because America backs it. Globalization happens because people find value in it. They find value in the connectivity; they find freedom in it; they find better lives. What is driving globalization are three billion capitalists. They're being transmuted into a global middle class, which will be the dominant power in the global economy and the global political system in the twenty-first century. The genie's out of the bottle. The latest tallies of international violence say that it's almost all occurring in places that are yet to be deeply integrated into the global economy, which tells me that we're in a frontier integrating age, just like we went through in America in the nineteenth century. by Thomas Barnett

Our struggle to isolate extremist within the opposition in Diaspora has started to bear fruits. Today Elias Kifle (Ethiopian Review) once upon a time known mouthpiece for all kind of opposition in Diaspora is left naked hung to dry as a Shaibia agent.

It has been a tough struggle but we could not be happier to see the likes of Dagmawi calling a spade a spade! Now that Elias is cut to size let us work on the other websites that continuously tell us doom and gloom about Ethiopia. They need at least to hear Ledetu Ayalew message “chefen teqawami” (blind opposition) will not take the opposition anywhere and will not help the democratization process in Ethiopia. We need to see more sober mind opposition figures to get prominence in the opposition block. Elias ciao e arrivederci!
