Opposition parties (the government calls them “competing parties) are not exceptions when it comes to GERD. Last week, the Council of Ethiopian Political parties and the National Public Participation Coordinating Council had a conference. The conference was attended by top Ethiopian government officials who have been part of the GERD negotiation. Ethiopia’s position is equitable utilization of the water resource – and it is “imperative” that all political parties in the country support that position. Unlike many other projects in the country, the project is funded by the Ethiopian people in the form of financial contributions.
