PM Names Getachew Reda as Head for Tigray Region Interim Admin

ADDIS ABABA – Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has named Getachew Reda as President of Tigray Region Interim Administration.

The appointment comes a day after the parliament removed the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) from the terrorist organizations list.

Authorities say the move to delist Tplf was made in order to implement the peace agreement signed between the federal government and TPLF in November, ending a two-year-long conflict in the north.

The PM Office in a statement today said the new Chief Administrator has been tasked with forming an all inclusive cabinet that ensures the representation of various political forces operating in Tigray.
