May 28 is the base for the respect of rights: House Speaker
Addis Ababa, May 27 (WIC) – Speaker of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) said that May 28 (Ginbot 20) was a historical day for the respect of both human and democratic rights of the nations, nationalities and peoples’ of Ethiopia.
In an exclusive interview with WIC, Abadula said Ethiopians had been deprived of their human and democratic rights for years in the previous regimes.
Following the bitter struggle carried out for over 17 years, nations and nationalities of Ethiopia managed to come out of a regime where they subjected to gross oppression under the yoke of the fascistic rules.
Currently, Ethiopian citizens are able to enjoy their fundamental rights, he said, adding a system that allows citizens to choose their representatives has also been created.
Ethiopia was to disintegrate some 20 years ago; however, the unity of nations, nationalities and people has given an end to that breach, he said.
The development policy which the Ethiopian People‘s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) follows ensured the development benefits of all citizens, he said.
Moreover, under the unwavering leadership and commitment of EPRDF, Ethiopia managed to register a double-digit economic growth over the past eight consecutive years.
