The Council of Ministers discussed and adopted a bill on the establishment of the National Commission for Truth and Reconciliation, which was sent to representatives of the House of Peoples for adoption, according to the data of the Cabinet of the Prime Minister.

The draft was informed on the assumption that social and political conflicts in Ethiopia for many years caused layers of dissatisfaction and tension. The commission aimed at reconciliation based on the ideals of "truth and justice".

Although some scientists, like Professor Al-Mariam, support this idea, there are critics who think that it does not make sense because they think there have never been great social conflicts that require national reconciliation. "Who are the concessions?" It's a question they often present.

At the height of ethnic politics with TPLF in the firm control of government machinery, political accusations are labeled against the ethics of Amhara as "petty" and as perpetrators of ethnic oppression in the history of the country, but the cloud of misconception and misrepresentation of ethnic Amhara are now falling with the fall of TPLF .

It seems that the leaders of Eritrea, including President Isaias Afevorki, shared the form of a negative attitude towards the ethnic Amhara in the past only to learn from time to time that their attitude towards Amhara was unfounded, which, according to President Isaias Afevorki, his last visit to Ethiopia, which focused on the Amhara region.

Ethical political parties in the country also change their conception of the history of ethnic influence in the history of the country that is associated with the supremacy of Amhara.

The Democratic Party Oromo (ODP), one of the largest ethical parties in the country that manages Oromo in Ethiopia, has recently changed its long-term political condemnation in that regard when it is said that oppression in Ethiopia's history is based on classes, not ethnic, which reflects the reality that led to the Ethiopian Revolution of 1974, many of whose leaders, including Colonel Mengist Hailemariam, where the ethnic Oromos are.

In related developments, the Council of Ministers also agreed to establish an identity and border committee to resolve disputes on identity issues and administrative borders in different parts of the country.

The decision was informed by the idea that conflicts about identity and border issues have become a source of instability. And the commission will be established on the principle of neutrality and professionalism.
