Parliament lifts state of emergency

Ethiopia’s Parliament has lifted the state of emergency that was declared in November 2021. It is a measure opposed by many parliamentarians who believe the decree must not be lifted as there is still a conflict in North Ethiopia, Oromia and other parts of the country.

In a session held today, 63 lawmakers voted against the lifting of the decree, while 21 members of the parliament were abstained. The decree however has been lifted, with a majority vote of 228.
