It is just shows how much the democracy of Ethiopia became true. Also Ethiopian gov't is expressed that ethio conistitution is respected. If who ever comes to leader position, what we need is change but, the right process has been finished.

Weyane buckled under pressure from the Western governments to promote the phony deputy PM H/Mariam into PM. Can you imagine what both Ethiopians and foreign governments would say if Woyanne elected another Tigraen PM while the powerless H/Mariam is the rightful successor? They had no choice but to confirm H/Mariam as PM. 

Tigreans TPLF still controls the military, the security apparatus, the media, the economy and even the new PM. He will be just a puppet PM like the puppet president.

I think Ethiopian politic is in a twisting road: better democracy or destruction of the constitutional law and pure dictatorial government.

if the TPLF gangs respect the current PM Hailemarim as much as the late PM Meles, there won't be any problem and democracy will be insured. this is the most probable one. because TPLF itself is in a great crisis right now and there might be a power strong with in itself. thats why they didn't still elected their party chair person.

the second, but most unlikely future of the country is destruction of the constitutional law and pure dictatorial government. this may happen only if some old TPLF members still need to command the newly elected PM and other government official. this could be a disaster for them and for whole country because the other there coalition parties are tired of this game and they need their autonomy.

good luck PM hailemariam
