Ethiopian Democratic Party might call for a protest


Ethiopia’s main opposition party has warned they will call for a protest in Addis Ababa if the govenment is not clear where it stands about Ethiopian’s biggest dam GERD.

US is pressuring Ethiopia and Egypt to compromise to an annual release of 37 billion cubic meters from Abay river, though Ethipia is willing for an annual release of 31 billion cubic meters.

While arrangements around the yearly water share have all fixated on an underlying brief period during which the GERD repository will be filled, Ethiopia is hoping to have the 37 billion cubic meters become the changeless portion of water it discharges every year much after the filling time frame, as indicated by the specialist.

This possibility has not been agreed by Egypt and is the main reason for tension between the two countries.
