The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) named its spokesperson, Getachew Read, for the interim post, Tigrai TV reported on Saturday. If Getachew’s nomination is approved by the federal government, he would replace TPLF leader Debretsion Gebremichael, who has led Tigray since 2018. It is not clear when the federal government might weigh in on Getachew’s nomination or when the interim administration will be set up. The lack of an interim government has been hampering the humanitarian response across Tigray, where millions are in dire need of assistance, according to aid workers. During that visit, Blinken discussed with Getachew and Ethiopian officials the importance of setting up the interim administration.
