PRESS STATEMENT
25 July 2019
FORMATION OF NEW BROAD-BASED POLITICAL
ORGANIZATION
THE FOUNDING CONGRESS
Transitional Coordinating Leadership (TCL) would like to inform the Eritrean Public that the
founding congress of the new broad-based national organization whose founding members are
individual members of the three above mentioned organizations will take place between 23 -25
August 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
The idea of convening a founding congress to launch the new organization followed the historic
decision by members of the three organizations to dissolve their respective organizations and
form a single broad -based national organization. This decision reflected the consensus reached
among members and a strong belief that establishing such a robust organization with a clear
national agenda would play a significant positive role in strengthening the on-going struggle of the
Eritrean people to end the 28 year old tyrannical rule in our country and to erect a constitutional
and democratic form of government in its place. The decision is also the culmination of several
months of closed- door discussions and dialogue among the leaders of
three organisations which eventually led the leaders of the three organizations to agree on
presenting the proposal to their respective individual members for a final decision.
In order to facilitate the smooth process of the dissolution of the three organizations and to lay the
foundation of the new organization, a number of committees, including a transitional coordinating
leadership, the Joint Technical Committee and Nominating Committee tasked with the
preparation process of the Founding Congress were formed.
Since their formation, these committees have been working hard and closely coordinating their
activities and as the result of their joint endeavour, the groundwork necessary for the convening
of the founding congress and the launching of the new organization has been successfully
completed.
During the three days, participants of the founding congress will discuss, amend and ratify the
draft basic documents of the new organization and democratically elect the new organization’s
leadership.
We strongly believe that the unity of purpose among pro-democracy forces is the only way
forward and as such the new organization would work and join hands with all Eritreans inside
Eritrea as well as the diaspora.
Transitional Coordinating Leadership
Victory to the Eritrean people!!
