Will COVID-19 Endanger Ethiopia's Nascent Democracy?

Ethiopia Insight posted on 25 May 2020 a commentary titled "Pandemic Is Blessing for Abiy but Curse for Ethiopian Democracy" by Mebratu Kelecha, University of Westminster.

The author argued that the coronavirus pandemic has allowed Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed to alter the balance of political power in his favor.  He added that the Prime Minister must guard against endangering a peaceful democratic future for Ethiopia by using the pandemic to circumvent fundamental political problems that can only be resolved by a genuinely inclusive process.
