Ethiopia to lift martial law: media – Xinhua

ADDIS ABABA, June 2 (Xinhua) — The Ethiopia Council of Ministers on Saturday approved a draft law that lifts marital law, reported state media Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation.

The draft will be sent to the Ethiopian parliament where it’s widely expected to be approved.

The ruling party, the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), and allied parties control all the 547 parliamentary seats.

Ethiopia imposed a six-month martial law on February 16, to stem violent protests and increasing ethnic clashes.

The Council noted that law and order have been restored to justify lifting the martial law.
