Addis Ababa September 01/2017 Senior political leaders who were on training urged to use the inputs they received to address public demands for good governance as a means of sustaining the ongoing reform.
During the closing of the training, representative of Meles Academy, Legesse Tulu urged the leadership to use the knowledge they get through the training to accelerate the ongoing reform.
The training would enable the participants to prepare themselves for discharging their responsibilities to effectively address the visible shortfalls on good governance, rent-seeking and related concerns of the public.
It would provide them with enhanced ideological concepts, developing skills and ensuring their political commitment and readiness for the tasks entrusted to them.
During the third round of the program, over 850 higher-level leaders completed the 44-day training on various topics.
The concepts and role of leadership in revolutionary democracy, fundamentals of building revolutionary party, science and art of leadership, rent seeking and its manifestation were among topics delivered to the participants.
The move to train high-level leaders came following the in-depth reform process which started at the end of 2016 to provide a concrete answer to the concern of the public.
The first objective of these reforms was to address unemployment, bad governance and further widen political space in the country.
During the previous two rounds of the program, the academy provided trainings for 944 higher-level leaders.
