Under the chairmanship of party head, Mr. Mengesteab Asmerom, the newly elected 9-person Executive Committee of the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) met on Saturday, 7 October 2017, and finalized drafting action plans to be implemented by the offices in close conjunction with the rank-and-file of the party during the coming 12 months. The drafts, based on general guidelines given by the Central Council, will be put into effect as soon as they revised and approved by the Central Council.
This EC regular meeting was the first since the body was elected on 17 September by the 8th regular meeting of the Central Council. The EPDP elects/re-elects its executive body every 12 months.
The EC meeting also pinpoints the priority tasks for the party during the coming few months. These will include meetings for party members as well as the general public, and intensive contacts with political and civic organizations struggling for democratic change in Eritrea.
Likewise, the meeting explored developments affecting Eritrea and its people, both at home and abroad, and took conclusions on every issue it discussed. Among the issues considered at the meeting was the pointless babble of a minuscule group that pointlessly attempted to question the legitimate actions and decisions of the party leadership and described those futile attempts as irresponsible and devoid of any basis whatsoever.
At concluding its meeting the Executive Committee renewed its strong appeal on party members and friends of the party to redouble their efforts in promoting every aspect of EPDP's work plans for the common good.
