Asmara, Eritrea (African Boulevard News) – A 27-member interim regional executive was formed on Wednesday to run Tigray as part of the peace process initiated in November to put an end to the devastating conflict in the northern Ethiopian region. The new administration includes Tigrayan generals and key figures from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the party that previously controlled the region’s institutions before taking up arms against the federal government in November 2020. The European Union (EU) and the United States are closely monitoring the implementation of peace in Ethiopia’s Tigray region.
Interim Administration Established
The Tigray interim administration, established under the Ethiopian government’s peace plan, is a significant step towards ending the conflict that has ravaged the region since November 2020. Tigray’s official television station, Tigrai TV, released the list of the 27-member interim regional executive, which is composed of both Tigrayan generals and TPLF figures. The formation of this administration marks a crucial development in the region’s ongoing efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
EU and US Monitoring the Situation
The EU and the US have expressed their commitment to monitoring the implementation of the peace plan in Tigray. Both entities have been closely observing the situation to ensure that the new interim administration is effectively established and that the peace process is moving forward. The international community’s involvement highlights the significance of this development and the need for ongoing support in order to secure lasting peace in the region.
Background of the Tigray Conflict
The Tigray conflict began in November 2020 when the TPLF attacked federal military bases in the region. This led to a full-scale military confrontation between the TPLF and the Ethiopian federal government. The fighting has resulted in the displacement of millions of people, widespread human rights abuses, and a devastating humanitarian crisis. The establishment of the interim administration is a crucial step towards ending the conflict and addressing the region’s pressing humanitarian needs.
The formation of the interim Tigray administration and the continued monitoring of the peace process by the EU and the US are essential steps in the right direction. However, much work remains to be done to ensure that the peace plan is fully implemented and that stability is restored to the region. With the international community’s support, Ethiopia can continue its efforts to bring an end to the Tigray conflict and build a more peaceful and prosperous future for its citizens.
The establishment of the Tigray interim administration is a significant development in the ongoing peace process in the region. The international community, particularly the EU and the US, are closely monitoring the situation to ensure that the peace process is effectively implemented, and the region can move towards a lasting resolution. As Ethiopia continues to make strides in this direction, the world watches with hope for a peaceful and stable future for the Tigray region and its people.
