Directive for State of Emergency to be Issued Following Parliament’s Approval

The Council of Ministers has declared a state of emergency effective from 16 February 2018 by adopting the decree providing for the emergency ruling.

 The Council of Ministers said the emergency rule is aimed at protecting the constitution and constitutional order, as well as ensuring security and stability of the country.

 Protecting freedom of movement and the rights of citizens to live wherever they choose as well as build assets, are also among the motives for the ruling.

 The Council in its press briefing noted that the violence that have been going on in some areas are undermining the security and stability of the country as well as the value of the people that promote peaceful coexistence. 

 The violent activities have also led to ethnic based attacks which led to the displacement, death and injury of people, damage on property, and hindered investment.

 These violent activities are hurting the economy and put the peaceful and free movement of citizens under question.

 The Council said it is important to adopt the decree, as the public has requested the government for protection and the dangerous activities have continued to expand and extend in time.

    The Ethiopian constitution under article 93 provides the power for the Council of Ministers to decree a state of emergency in case of external invasion, a breakdown of law and order which endangers constitutional order, natural disaster or an epidemic occur.
