Election​​ of​​ new​​ executive​​ committee

 

In​​ its​​ general​​ membership​​ meeting,​​ convened​​ on​​ 18​​ March​​ 2017,​​ the​​ Eritrean​​ Law​​ Society​​ (ELS)​​ has​​ elected​​ a​​ new​​ executive​​ committee​​ (ExCo),​​ entrusted,​​ among​​ other​​ things,​​ with​​ the​​ implementation​​ of​​ a​​ revitalisation​​ plan​​ of​​ the​​ Society.​​ The​​ plan​​ will​​ be​​ given​​ effect​​ over​​ the​​ next​​ two​​ years.​​ 

 

Over​​ the​​ past​​ several​​ years,​​ ELS​​ was​​ experiencing​​ some​​ institutional​​ obstacles​​ related​​ to​​ the​​ fact​​ that​​ it​​ is​​ an​​ organisation​​ operating​​ from​​ exile,​​ like​​ many​​ other​​ Eritrean​​ civil​​ society​​ organisations,​​ apparent​​ limitations​​ owed​​ to​​ this​​ fact.​​ The​​ election​​ of​​ the​​ new​​ ExCo​​ is​​ expected​​ to​​ take​​ ELS​​ to​​ a​​ new​​ chapter​​ in​​ which​​ the​​ Society​​ is​​ expected​​ to​​ strive​​ hard​​ for​​ the​​ achievement​​ of​​ its​​ core​​ objectives,​​ one​​ of​​ which​​ is:​​ promoting​​ the​​ establishment​​ of​​ an​​ Eritrean​​ politico-legal​​ system​​ anchored​​ on​​ respect​​ for​​ the​​ rule​​ of​​ law.​​ Members​​ of​​ the​​ newly​​ elected​​ ExCo​​ are:

 

Dr.​​ Daniel​​ Mekonnen​​ (Executive​​ Director)

Mr.​​ Biniam​​ F.​​ Ghebremichael​​ (Secretary)

Mr.​​ Wesenseghed​​ Hagos​​ (Treasurer)

 

Announcement​​ of​​ this​​ information​​ was​​ delayed​​ due​​ to​​ the​​ fact​​ that​​ the​​ website​​ of​​ ELS​​ was​​ down​​ for​​ a​​ prolonged​​ period​​ of​​ time.​​ The​​ website​​ has​​ gone​​ online​​ in​​ a​​ renewed​​ format​​ and​​ shape​​ as​​ from​​ this​​ week.​​ It​​ is​​ still​​ undergoing​​ renovation.

 

The​​ Society​​ would​​ like​​ to​​ take​​ this​​ occasion​​ to​​ extend​​ its​​ call:​​ 

 

1)​​ on​​ all​​ Eritrean​​ legal​​ professionals​​ who​​ have​​ not​​ yet​​ joined​​ the​​ Society​​ to​​ do​​ so,​​ and

 

2)​​ on​​ all​​ who​​ are​​ interested​​ in​​ supporting​​ the​​ Society​​ to​​ provide​​ whatever​​ support​​ they​​ can​​ give​​ 

by​​ contacting​​ the​​ ExCo​​ in​​ the​​ contact​​ details​​ provided​​ on​​ this​​ website.
