The Executive Committee of the EPRDF announced that it has accepted  the  request of  Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn to resign as premier and chairman of the party.

In his presser, Shiferaw Shigute, Head of the Office of the EPRDF Council said the Committee has accepted the request after a thorough discussion on the issue.

Prime Minister Hailemariam has announced his desire to resign from the posts of the premiership and party chairmanship this afternoon.
