A letter of best wishes was presented on the conference by representatives of the recently established Ethiopian People’s Joint Struggle Shengo (Shengo) which was appreciated by the participants. Furthermore, the conference called on all political parties, civic organizations and other democratic forces to establish a joint struggle taskforce and mandated the newly formed Executive Council of ENTC to make relentless effort to ensure the realization of this mission.
