The delegation of the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) at the congress of the Danish Social Democratic Party (DSDP) in Aalborg reminded fraternal parties on Sunday, 17 September, their moral responsibility to promote good governance in Africa and the rest of the developing countries instead of continuing with material support which used to end in the hands of repressive and corrupt rulers since the 1960s in Africa.

 

The EPDP delegation, consisting of Messrs. Tekle Melekin and Amanuel Beraki, both leadership members, were attending the DSDP Congress in Aalborg, northern Denmark along with 800 DSDP delegates and 75 representatives of invited parties and movements from Europe and many other parts of the globe.

 

Opened on 16 September, the congress was addressed a good number of Danish mayors, prominent guest speakers and DSDP leaders, including party leader Ms Mette Frederiksen. The main focus of their presentations were European and global issues including migration and refugees; the challenge to social justice by the rise of right-wing movements; problems of multiculturalism as integration showed clear signs of failure.

Following a separate session for DSDP delegates to finalize certain internal party issues, a plenary assembly on 17 September provided the opportunity to more presentations on global issues and discussing them as challenges to peace, social justice and well-being of peoples everywhere. It was at this point that the EPDP delegation found an opportune moment to raise the burning issue of bad governance in Africa and many other countries, and to blame European social democrats to be at the forefront of the struggle against repression and corruption in post-independence Africa.

The EPDP delegation also continued holding side-talks and establishing contacts with as many as possible of the participating parties. It shared with them party documents, including a written EPDP statement to the DSPD Congress.

The statement, among other things, reaffirmed EPDP's resolve "to promote the lofty principles of peace, social justice and solidarity  in the global agenda of the Progressive Alliance," and explained the sad situation of Eritreans at home and those in forced exile. 

Furthermore, the EPDP statement underlined the urgency of political change in Eritrea which can only be achieved by Eritreans supported by fraternal parties like those attending DSDP congress in Aalborg. The statement concluded with these words: "Our urgent message to you all is the call to support in a concrete manner the promotion of human rights, democracy and the rule of law in Eritrea through empowering non-state political and civil society actors that are opposed, like our party, to the dictatorship in our country".

The 8th regular meeting of the EPDP Central Council held the 5th session of its 8th regular meeting on Sunday, 17 September, and, among other things, elected its executive committee to lead the party for the next 12 months.

The top agenda item discussed in the meeting was the  EPDP proposal for an extensive dialogue in the Eritrean opposition camp with the aim of fining  a working formula for joint action by all political forces struggling for democratic change in Eritrea. The meeting heard reports on what has so far expired since the proposal was issued last June. The Council agreed on the modalities of contacting all concerned bodies and mandated the newly elected executive committee to follow the matter as high priority task.  Also discussed on the Sunday meeting and given appropriate guidelines was a report submitted by a standing committee for financial matters and social services.  

At the end of this final session, the 8th regular meeting elected a 9-member executive committee for a one-year term. Mr. Menghesteab Asmerom was re-elected with acclamation and asked to present his candidates for the executive offices.

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.

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.

EPDP CC 8th Regular Meeting Forms Renewal Commission 1

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:

 

  1. The unruly acts and wild pronouncements of the ex-zone committee in North America have nothing to do with the EPDP and its organs;
  2. 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;
  3.  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.
