DescriptionUnion of eight major and minor parties in support of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

The parties which agreed to join the new Prosperity Party (and consequently dissolve themselves) are the long time dominant Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), the Oromo Democratic Party (ODP), the Somali Democratic Party (SDP), the Harari National League (HNL), the Benishangul Gumuz People’s Democratic Party (BGPDP), the Gambella People’s Unity Democratic Movement (GPUDM), the Amhara Democratic Party (ADP) and the South Peoples Democratic Movement (SPDM) [Link]

The merger faced opposition from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), calling the union "a total sham."

Opponents fear that this new omnipresent organization will be dominated by members of the Oromo Democratic Party and Prime Minister Abiy's ethnic Oromo people.
