Some 12 opposition political parties have created a coalition that will enable them to negotiate with the ruling party EPRDF.

The agreement signed by the political parties, said the signatories, will create good relationship among the parties and forward organized and strong negotiation points.

Representatives of the parties told the reporters on Friday the deal will have crucial role in bolstering the multi-party system in the country.

The coalition will have a significant role in discarding any law that hampers the formation of strong political party by stifling democracy and adding others that enhance democracy, they said.
