Gedu Andargachew Press Briefing Gedu Andargachew has won reelection as the president of the Amhara National Regional State for a third consecutive time, despite earlier reports that he would not continue. He was appointed to the post in 2013, succeeding Ayalew Gobeze who took an ambassadorial post in Turkey. On 2015, Gedu was re-elected as chief administrator of the region. He served in the past as deputy president of the region and head of the agriculture bureau. He remains a popular figure in the region, despite irking certain members of the federal government in his supposed position on the border issue of Wolkait Tsegede and Humera, a cause of contention with the Tigray region.

With respect to the source of the renewed conflict between the Ethiopian Somali and Oromia regional states, he blamed it on rent-seeking groups that sought to exploit what he said was a ‘minor conflict.’ displayAdvert("mpu_3") The same position had been advanced by Premier Hailemariam Desalegn in a recent address to lawmakers. The Minister, however, stressed that the government had worked with the two regional administrations to contain the situation and that normalcy had returned to the area.
