Ethiopia’s Parliament elects Hon. Bedo Kumbi and Hon. Ashebir Gayo into PAP

Hon. Dr. Ashebir Gayo

The House of Peoples’ Representatives of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia has announced the election of Hon. Mrs. Lomi Bedo Kumbi and Hon. Dr. Ashebir W. Gayo as members of the Ethiopian Parliament’s delegation to the Pan African Parliament (PAP).

This was contained in a letter dated January 30, 2022 and addressed to the Clerk of the Pan African Parliament by the Speaker of the Ethiopian Parliament, Rt. Hon. Tagesse Chafo.

Hon. Mrs. Lomi Kumbi is the current Deputy Speaker of the Parliament while Hon. Dr. Gayo a ranking member of the Ethiopian Parliament has previously served as a member of PAP.

Hon. Dr. Gayo served as Vice President representing the Eastern Regional Caucus of PAP in the Fourth parliament  from May 2015 to May 2018. His election is therefore a welcome development  considering the high turnover of PAP parliamentarians with the resultant loss of institutional memory which has adversely affected the parliament.

It would be recalled that Ethiopia’s parliamentary election was conducted in June 2021 necessitating the election of the a new delegation to PAP as required by the Protocol establishing the Pan African Parliament.
