Tigray’s largest scholars group, the Global Society of Tigray Scholars and Professionals (GSTS) calls for a more inclusive interim administration of Tigray with Tigray People’s Liberation Front making up 25% of the seats at both the Interim Council (legislative) and Executive Body at all administrative levels in a nine-page proposal issued by the group. With the proposed arrangement, the opposition parties will get 20% while the majority (55%) will be held by what the group calls those not affiliated with any political parties to be sworn in under oath. This largest share will be made up of civil society organizations, minorities, associations of various types and constituencies, communities, and eminent persons at 30%, and Tigray Defense Forces (TDF) at 25%.
It is not clear whether the TPLF that is currently celebrating its 48th anniversary will be amicable to this proposal that builds on experiences from many countries around the world and came days after the party established a controversial nine-member committee led by TDF General Tadesse Worede tasked with establishing the interim administration.
