Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed sworn in for another 5-year term

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali has been sworn in for another five-year term.

The 45-year-old Nobel laureate took the oath of office during the joint session of the House of People’s Representatives and House of the Federation held on Monday.

Abiy’s Prosperity Party scored a landslide win in the June 21 Parliamentary and Regional Councils’ elections.

The prime minister said his new government would include opposition figures and already the Addis Ababa city administration that was inducted last week included two opposition figures in its Cabinet.

On Sunday, an opposition party EZEMA (Ethiopians for Democracy and Justice Party) said they accepted the Ethiopian government’s offer to work together.
