Passes separate proclamations to re-establish ENA, EPAThe House of People’s Representatives (HPR) has amended two separate proclamations to re-establish the Ethiopian News Service and the Ethiopian Press Agency (EPA) to solve challenges faced in regards to employees’ salaries and benefits. It is to be recalled that the Ethiopian News Agency was renamed to ‘The Ethiopian News service’ earlier in February, after the House amended the former proclamation. Similar provisions were also incorporated in the proclamation, proposed for the re-establishment of the Ethiopian Press Agency. The Ethiopian Press Agency, established in 1940, is a state-run media enterprise operating in Ethiopia. The Press Agency proclamation passed with 10 MPs voting against it while another 1o voted in abstention.
