January, 2014
The former Minister of Communications and now the advisor of Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn, Bereket Simon, said at a recent meeting and evaluation with ministers and top leadership of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) “as theories used to lead the people could rust unless updated, it has become necessary to replace Revolutionary Democracy with Developmental Democracy”.  EPRDF’s is better described through the latter, he said.

Unless the government has its own sources of income, it will be like Western African countries such as Coted D’ivore’s government which gets its payments from the French embassy in the Country.  He said the case is similar in Kenya.
EPRDF obtained over 100 million birr from private investors during the 2010 election.
