According to the press statement of Medrek, the six present member organizations of the party and other opposition political organizations that may join Medrek in the process will act with commitment as one. This movement will continue until the political, economic and social vision of Medrek is placed, the sovereign power of the Ethiopian people ensured, a democratic system prevails and the people embark on the road to development. This will enable the Ethiopian people to extricate themselves from poverty and backwardness, the statement says.
