For immediate release
The Executive committee of ONLF held its ordinary meeting in Jigjiga, Somali state, between
September 7-10, and 16, 2021 and pondered on the dire situation that is developing in Horn
of Africa, Ethiopia, and the Somali state.
The EC reiterated its firm commitment to non-violence and the pursue of its political aims
through dialogue and peaceful process despite the many challenges and unfair treatment
ONLF has be subjected to, since the peace agreement between the ONLF and the Ethiopian
government. However, to keep the current peace and stability in the Somali state all sides
must be genuine about keeping the peace. Since peace cannot be kept alone0 parties to the
current wars to opt for peaceful settlement of the conflicts and spare the lives of millions
that are harmed by the continuation of this destructive war.
The EC evaluated the ONLF’s participation in the coming election and consulted extensively
with its members and supporters. After this careful deliberation, The EC decided that ONLF
withdraw from the 2021 election. ONLF EC deeply regrets this decision. However, despite
the repeated appeals to NEBE to rectify the widespread voter registration process fraud by
the PP party with concrete suggestions by the opposition parties, it has failed to put in place
the conditions necessary for free and fair election in the Somali state. The people’s hope
created by postponing the election for three months, was shattered by NEBE’s decision to
maintain the fraudulent process.
The EC did not easily take this decision. Since ONLF’s core reason to stop the armed struggle
was to pursue the rights of the Somali people through peaceful democratic means.
However, the circumstances that the ruling party imposed on ONLF and other opposition
parties, from blocking candidate registration, attacking or harassing candidates and
members, and finally obstructing proper voter registration of the people with no recourse
to genuine justice, has finally forced ONLF to the withdrawal today from the elections.
EC is gravely concerned about the worsening situation on the Somali Afar Border. ONLF
believes that if there is the will and the genuine desire of the Federal government, that issue
could be resolved through the constitution and legal framework. It is very ironic that para￾military forces controlled by the same party fight each other. The issue cannot be solved
through dubious administrative agreements reached by respective administrations. The
constitution stipulates that where dispute occurs between two nations on a border area,
referendum will be held. Why is this not applied to the disputed territory? ONLF calls upon
the federal government to stop shunning its responsibility and address this issue in a fair
and transparent manner. ONLF further calls other nations in Ethiopia to stop meddling in
the affair between Somalis and Afar. Such meddling could instigate ethnic tensions that may
have dire consequences among communities living in peace. In addition, ONLF calls upon
the international community to supply meaningful aid to the displaced people from the
Somali Afar Conflict, specially, the Somalis who are habitually marginalized.
ONLF reiterates its call for a Somali consultative national conference to unite the Somali
people to develop a common stance in order to strengthen their unity and effort to
maintain the stability and a peace achieved so far. Such a unity will facilitate working
together to promote the effort to develop a genuine democratic process that establishes a
representative governance which will be the basis of a stable peaceful society that are at
peace with itself and its neighbours.
Finally, ONLF once again reiterates its strategic choice to pursue the rights of the Somali
people through peaceful proactive struggle and is willing to engage in any genuine national dialogue. Issued by ONLF

 
How can they participate in an elections where Abye regime is using Afar rebels to ethnic cleanse somalis in Sitti?
Exactly if Abiy can't secure he unity of Ethiopia and using ethnic groups against each other with the regional leaders being in his pocket why would ONLF entertain the fake election circus where it would be 100% rigged

Abye siding with Afars against Somalis shows that he doesnt regard somalis as Ethiopians but invaders.

The conflict between Afar and Somali is something that Abye created.

It was yesterday when ENDF killed 2 Somali Liyu police in Sitti.

I been waiting to catch an amahara and ask him how would he feel if Somalis moved into Gondar and started building mosques.
Onlf has become soft bro they used to answer with shells and gun sounds, but it’s not their fault. When you get tortured,killed,raped, and discriminated you have to resort to other tactics.

ONLF is likely going back to the bush most zoos will likely be happy to here that but this is most definitely not an ideal option.

Since the wars turnaround Cagjar has trained thousands more and consolidated his reign in Jigjiga. Abiy couldnt remove him without a headache and thats something he cant afford with the Tigray conflict taking all hands. I told everyone prior Cagjar will not send the Liyu en masse anywhere for this very reason.

People greatly misunderstand Cagjar aswell as Abiy and that bears heavy consequences.

I don't think they would care as there's plenty of mosques in Gondar. I think you meant Axum (Tigray).
Amahara are more hateful to their fellow Muslims then Tigrayans are to their own. If Muslims in Tigray were treated horrible then wouldn’t you think the endf would’ve used that as weapon against the tdf when they invaded. Maybe even use where they live as a stronghold or base which endf currently has zero in Tigray. The Muslims in wollo and lalibela were helping the tdf, if they were treated right they would’ve fought against them.

No one will die for Cagjar if the goverment turns against him.
