Executive committee member of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front Getachew Reda said the ruling party has been issuing ‘rosy’ press statements which did not reflect the actual deliberations of its meetings. In an interview with Tigray TV, Getachew said he was tired of EPRDF’s statements which he described them as "shallow” and "frustrating. "The statements were more of self-appreciating and it would be good if they were not issued, Getachew said. He said the executive body of EPRDF is accountable for all the crises the nation has undergone over the last four years and the recent killings.
Personally, I feel insecure and if we don’t wake up now, we cannot save ourselves, let alone the Ethiopian people. In its latest meeting, EPRDF started to face the reality but there are still differences among member parties and he equated EPRDF as a sinking ship. According to Getachew Reda, the next elections should be conducted as per the schedule. "EPRDF will not be a legitimate party to govern the nation after June next year.
