Never say never! Even Tamirat Layne, who came from an obscure and besless EPDM was made PM by TPLF and Meles.
The biggest obstacle Eleni will face is Azeb but that can be easily handled if she aligns herself with the right Tigre warlord. A warlord who has the military backing but who needs western backing and connections.
No wonder Eleni gave up her CEO position for ECX to an unknown inexperienced young dude. Better and exciting posts were opening up and she didn't want to miss the opportunity!
Eleni has 0 chance in TPLF.
Meanwhile, TPLF stalwart Eleni G.Medhins’ attempt to bring together the implacable warlords at a scrumptious luncheon organized for Thursday afternoon at Zenawi occupied Menelik’ s palace badly backfired and left the woman embarrassed when Abbay Woldu refused to attend.
Well-placed sources within the TPLF told the Horn Times that Eleni persuaded acting PMs, the twin warlords Tedros Adhanom and Birhane Gebrechristos to put their differences aside for the ailing Zenawis’ sake and meet Woldu. However, she only hit a glass ceiling.
