PRESS RELEASE By CUDP, OFDM and UEDFCritical Issues that must be Resolved Before Local Elections 2008 posted at 10/26/2007 11.59 pm

 On October 16, 2007, the National Election Board (NEB) invited all registered Political parties in the country and informed that Local Elections would be held early next year (2008), with election activities beginning on October this year.
The NEB distributed a schedule of election events beginning on October 22 and ending on Election Day, which will be on March 2 and 9, 2008. Opposition parties who attended the meeting raised many pertinent questions, which were of common concern to all of them. All parties were overwhelmed by the myriad of events packed into the short period of October to February.
At the end of the meeting, the NEB had to agree that political parties review the schedule and submit comments within five days.
It is to be recalled that although local elections are one year behind schedule, according to the Election Law, we did agree with the Ruling Party in May 2007 that Local Elections be held between December 2007 and February 2008, on condition that:

1. Opposition party local offices are opened and that all political parties will be allowed to conduct political activities unencumbered;
2. The harassment of party members and supporters cease forthwith;
3. Public Mass Media be accessible to all political Parties in an equitable manner and the freedom of the independent press be guaranteed;
4. Decision on Political Party financing by Government, as provided for in the Party Law, be made so that legally registered political parties will be able to engage in meaningful political activities in their constituencies;
5. An acceptable structure of the NEB is put in place from the Head Office to the Local levels. Competent election administrative professionals be employed both at the Head Office and at all local levels following the established Civil Service employment procedures;
6. Matters relating to Election Observers would be clarified and appropriate preparations are made.
However, since then, our members and supporters are being harassed continuously.
Many of them have been imprisoned for prolonged period of time and thrown intojail.
Our local party offices have been closed, vandalized and prevented from functioning. Landlords have been prevented from renting office space to the opposition political parties. In one case, a donor wanted to buy office space for one of our parties, and local Government officials refused to register the sale.
Political party leadership, party members and activists are invariably obstructed from making public interactions with their constituencies. Even in the rarely tolerated situations our party functionaries find themselves among the electorate, they feel insecure while moving among them as there is no security, and the police themselves display visible hostility to political parties opposed to the Ruling Party.
Lack of funds has seriously affected our capacities to be effective as political parties. The Government has refused to grant funds to Political Parties, thus, acting arbitrarily and contrary to the practice of many governments. The practice of funding and/or providing support to Political Parties by the Government, including developed countries, is almost universal.
Without access to any kind of media, the opposition has been virtually separated from the electorate, while the Ruling Party uses public media monopolistically everyday.
As a matter of principle, Ethiopian elections must be observable. Hence, both local and foreign Election Observers should, as a matter of practice, be welcome to observe Ethiopian elections whether local or national. While the Government always has the right to grant or deny entry visa to any foreign visitor, foreigners who qualify should be allowed to observe Ethiopian elections as a matter of practice. Therefore, it is our strong conviction that as a confidence building measure in the electoral process, and hence to make the outcome of the elections agreeable to all competing parties, the upcoming local elections must be observed by experienced and competent independent local as well as foreign observers. It is our considered judgment that an independent observation of the upcoming local elections would avoid the recurrent eruption of prolonged rancor that had beset past elections.
Therefore, before finalizing the draft election 2008 schedule, we propose that the outstanding issues indicated above and other matters relating to the upcoming local elections be resolved through inter-party negotiations and talks with the Government,

I have attended the rest of my elementary classes in Hayeke School and grade nine and ten at Addis Ketema high school in Awassa..
