PM Hailemariam to Step Down
Ethiopian Prime Minister, Hailemariam Dessaelgn, has resigned as the Chair of his party, the Southern Ethiopian People’s Democratic Movement (SEPDM), and the ruling Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), as well as from his post as Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
