The newly elected top executive team of Ethiopian Democratic Party (EDP) visited the Southern part of the country and had an effective meeting with local EDP executives and party members as well.
The visiting team was composed of Ato Chane Kebede President of the party, Ato Ermias Balkew head of the party’s structural and internal affairs and Ato Wassihun Tesfaye head of the party’s research and development wing.
During their week stay they had a chance to meet local executives of the party and EDP members in Aleta Wendo, Sidama , Hawassa, Shashemene and Wolayeta Sodo zone.
The discussion focused mainly on the early preparation for the 2015 election, helping the local executives and members to reach the society on regular basis and enforcing local executives to provide work plan and start work as soon as possible based on the discussion with the senior executives.
Accordingly, consensus has reached that the local executives will start preparation for the 2015 national election. It is also reached an agreement that with the close attention of the top executive body, the local executives work intimately with the society in the region and promote the ideas of EDP.
