Ethiopia’s lower house of parliament has approved with a majority vote a resolution by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s cabinet designating the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the Oromo Liberation Army (OLF-Shene) as terrorist organisations.
The cabinet resolution was on 1 May.
The TPLF – dominant in Ethiopian politics for three decades until 2018,has been fighting with the federal government since November in Tigray state.
Authorities often accuse OLF-Shene of being behind attacks that target ethnic Amhara and other minorities living in the largest Oromia state.
The move comes a month before Ethiopia’s national elections.
