    Ethiopia’s Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) rebels have denied establishing a transitional administration in the northern region as agreed in November last year.

    According to a local news website, the TPLF had completed the process of assembling a 28-member provisional regional administration, which required approval from the federal government.

    Nevertheless, Getachew Reda, a TPLF spokeswoman, stated that the Tigray interim administration would be constituted only after mutual negotiations between the parties to the Pretoria agreement.

    “Reports of a [transitional administration] being constituted in Tigray without Addis’ involvement contradict reality. Tigray is merely doing its share “On Sunday, Mr Getachew tweeted.

    Leading regional political groups have called for an inclusive interim government to guide the region as it recovers from the catastrophic civil war.

    Opposition groups in Tigray skipped a convention last month to form an interim administration, accusing the TPLF of monopolizing the process.
