The lower house of the Ethiopian parliament has removed the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) from the terrorist list.
The House approved the motion to delist TPLF from the terrorist group with a majority vote in its extraordinary session today.
The session saw 61 members of the parliament vote against the motion while 5 others abstained.
The move to delist TPLF was made to bring about sustainable peace in northern Ethiopia as per the Pretoria peace deal, authorities say.
The federal government and Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) signed a cessation of hostilities agreement last November, ending a two-year-long conflict in the north.
