Government Executive Body Discussion on Good Governance Issues - Nov 2015

Kudos to PM Hailemariam for opening such venue! This is a timely good start to address the bottlenecks of development and peace! It is understandable all good governance issues will not be solved in one go or with a single campaign but having a clear directive and guideline along with a sound policy will remove many of the bottlenecks. Otherwise good governance issues will continue for the time to come albeit with new issues!

TPLF has been one dynamic organization! And it should continue as such if the legacy of all the martyrs is to be honored!
