Addis Ababa, October 27, 2018 –The Afar National Democratic Party (ANDP) has suspended three of its top leadership.
The three officials suspended today are Ismael Alisero, Chief Administer of the regional state and his Deputy, Awel Arba as well as Ali Hussien, head of the regional state’s pastoralist affairs bureau.
They were suspended from their positions for violating the party’s code of conduct, said Ambassador Hassen Abdulkadir, Deputy Chairperson of the party.
