A leadership delegation of the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) is in Aalborg, northern Denmark, attending congress of the fraternal Danish Social Democratic Party (DSDP), which opened Saturday, 16 September 2017. Delegation members are Messrs Tekle Melekin and Amanuel Beraki, both members of the EPDP Central Council.
During sessions of the first day of the congress, the EPDP delegation handed over to Mr. Simon Redder Thomsen, DSDP International Secretary, a letter addressed to DSDP Chairwoman, Ms Mette Frederiksen, from EPDP Chairman Menghesteab Asmerom. The letter, which introduced the delegation members, expressed the EPDP's profound pleasure to attend the DSDP event in Alborg and seize the opportunity of holding bilateral talks for closer relationship of the two fraternal parties, which were founding members of the Progressive Alliance in Leipzig, Germany, in 2013.
After touching upon the plight of the Eritrean people at home and refugees, the EPDP Chairman underlined the fact that the only viable solution to the problem in Eritrea is the removal of the regime that can be realized in a democratic manner through the empowerment of Eritreans struggling for a positive change.

The first day of the congress held intensive sessions with opening addresses and discussion on the challenges of the Danish Social Democratic Party at the present. A plenary session later in the afternoon discussed global issues like the problem of migration and refugees in Europe and the rest of the world. The DSPD concurred with other discussants on the prevailing failure in the integration of migrants and the challenge of facing parallel "societies" building up in several European countries.
The EPDP delegation also met Mr. Paul Nielson, former Danish minister currently an EU Commissioner, with whom they shared the EPDP statement to the congress. Messrs. Tekle Melekin and Amanuel Beraki held a brief chat with Mr. Mohammed Liman Ali, a delegate of the Polisario Front of Western Sahara.
The DSDP Congress is on its second and final day today, 17 September, during which the EPDP delegation will share their statement with congress participants and hold side-talks with as many as possible of participant delegations, most of whom are members of the Progressive Alliance.
On 7 September 2017, Board members of the cultural Eritrea-Sweden association known as 'Eritrea in Our Hearts', met with Mayor Yonas Attenius and his team at the Gothenburg city hall, and discussed many pressing issues, in particular those affecting members of the Eritrean community in the region. Mayor Attenius is in charge of city's public works and administration. The Eritrea-Sweden cultural body was represented by association president, Mr. Thomas Magnusson and his team.
Mr. Magnusson warmly thanked the Mayor's Office for the meeting and explained objectives and activities of the association in support of community members. Messrs Zehaie Keleta and Amjed Yassin, association board members on their part talked about the suffering of the Eritrean people due to the erroneous policies of the regime in Eritrea. They also took time to explain the uncountable abuses of the Eritrean regime embassies upon Eritrean communities in exile.
During the two-hour long discussion, the Mayor showed great interest to know more about the situation of young refugees in the city, particularly women, and was given detailed information and clarifications on those issues. At the end of the discussion, the board members of 'Eritrea in Our Hearts' presented a list of their needs and demands for consideration and action by the Office of the Mayor. They were later taken to a visit of the new Gothenburg City Hall building.
The Central Council of the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) on Sunday 10 September, 2017, adopted a Party Renewal document and formed a new Commission for Party Renewal which is expected to report to the Council every two months on the implementation of the document and additional ideas and tasks that can surface in repeated consultations with all concerned inside and outside the Party. The Commission is mandated to function till the next EPDP Congress in two years.
The party renewal project was decided during the 7th regular meeting of the EPDP Central Council that ended on 18 September 2016. It is to be recalled that a research body formed by the Executive Committee presented its paper at the Party Conference of March 2017 in Frankfurt, and the document now adopted by the EPDP leadership is a summary of those findings so far discussed.
The chain of sessions, being held electronically every weekend, are attended by the EPDP Central Council members who reside in the following 12 countries, listed in alphabetical order: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, Holland, the Sudan, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The current 8th Regular Meeting of the Council held its first and second session on 26 and 27 August 2017 during which it reviewed and adopted annual reports of the nine executive offices and other organs of the party. After skipping a weekend for the Eid al-Adha Holiday, the third session convened on 9 September deliberated on reports received from various organs in North America dealing with a destructive hiccup caused by a faction in the zonal leadership and its accomplices. In this regard, the Council reviewed a draft paper presented by the executive body and decided as follows:
- The unruly acts and wild pronouncements of the ex-zone committee in North America have nothing to do with the EPDP and its organs;
- Highly commends EPDP North America members who are abiding by decisions of the party leadership elected at the second EPD Congress of 2015, and who are closely cooperating with the newly formed Preparatory Committee for an emergency zonal congress for EPDP North America;
- Likewise, the EPDP Council called upon all members in North America to closely cooperate with the Preparatory Committee and share their views by attending the emergency congress now under preparation.
As noted earlier, the 4th session of the current meeting on Sunday, 10 September, dealt mainly with party renewal issues although it also managed to vote on elected Zerabruk Gebre-Tatewos of EPDP Holland to be the new Auditor General of the party finances. The next session is scheduled for Sunday, 17 September 2017.

On Sunday, 27 August 2017, the Preparatory Committee for an extraordinary congress of EPDP North America Zone (USA and Canada) held an all-membership teleconference for situation review and for updating members on latest zonal and party activities. This is one of a chain of meetings called by the Preparatory Committee this summer in the aftermath of a disruptive period that stalled North America Zone activities for nearly a year following a Central Council decision to suspend from party membership of a party member till the next EPDP congress.
According to the press statement of the Preparatory Committee, the meeting discussed, among other things, the recommendations it sent for possible consideration at the 8th regular EPDP Central Council meeting which is in session this month. Also raised at the meeting was a petition - with its misleading claims and figures - sent to the Central Council by some of the unruly ex-NA zone leadership members who until now stand opposed to abide by party rules and regulations that wished to interpret them in their own erroneous ways.
Reports of various task forces were presented and reviewed at the all-membership electronic meeting. The organizational mobilization committee reported on its performances so far accomplished and noted that membership screening and enrollment will be a continuing process. Also discussed were relevant EPDP constitutional provisions on party membership and the appropriate actions that need to be taken on those who fail to live up to the expectations of party rules and discipline.
Likewise, the finance and information-diplomacy committees presented their reports that included future plans of action. For example, the information and diplomacy committee explained its intention of reviving joint work with sister organizations in the Eritrean opposition camp, cooperation with humanitarian societies and governmental institutions while also effectively confronting hostile elements, including those serving as hidden agents of the dictatorship in Eritrea.
The meeting was briefed on latest party activities that included contents of the EPDP memorandum to Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano on 25 August urging the Italian Government to provide decent housing to those Eritrean refugees now left in the streets of Rome after being forcibly evicted from an old building they were sheltered at, some of them since 2013.
