Thank you for your question Spongie555.  No the Kebra Nagast Party is not register as and political party in Ethiopia yet.  We are at this time reviewing the election board qualifications to establish and political party in Ethiopia.  We are trying to find out would our fellow Ethiopian's would support the restoration of and constitutional monarchy in Ethiopia.  We are doing other things to bring attention to the monarchist cause.  We just created and facebook group on facebook and the membership is growing.  We also had members of the EthiopianYouth National Movement contact us.  They would like to see if they and our organization could, work together in liberating Ethiopia from the current administration.  That is a beginning because it is important for us to work with other, Ethiopian political groups that seek the same thing.  To remove the current government from power.  We made it clear to them that we are and monarchist party that seeks to restore the monarchy, they seem to not have and problem with our political goals.  We will see, but for now lets us work together.  I hope Spongie555 I was able to answer your questions.

A photograph of the Ethiopian Parliament building during the time of Emperor Haile Selassie.  The striking art deco parliament building was built in the early 1930's.  Today the large mosaics of St. George and the Dragon (Ethiopia's Patron Saint) and the two Lions of Judah on either side of him have been painted over, and the gilding that covered the winged lions on the gates has worn away.  Although the Derg used the new Shengo Hall (it was the largest prefab building in the world when it was built) across the street as it's parliament, the present government has moved parliament back into this older building.

Ato Seyoum Haregot, a former high government official of the Imperial regime and the husband of Emperor Haile Selassie's granddaughter Emebet (lady) Tsige Mariam Abebe (daughter of Princess Tenagnework) died earlier this week.  Ato Seyoum Haregot was the son of Dejazmatch Haregot Abai, the speaker of the Eritrean Parliament during the Federation of Eritrea to the Ethiopian Empire, and a major figure in the Unionist Party that pushed for the complete union of Eritrea with Ethiopia.  Ato Seyoum served in the Imperial Ethiopian government under several capacities rising as high as Deputy Prime Minister, and was imprisonned for several years by the Derg.  After his release he worked for the United Nations and worked for the organization before retiring to Eritrea.

29 May 2012: Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Receives the Golden Key to Frankfort, Kentucky

The City also passes resolution proclaiming May 7, 2012 as �Prince Ermias Day�

 

 

Mayor Graham of Frankfort, KY handing the Golden Key of the City to HIH Prince Ermias
 
H. Gippy Graham, Mayor of Frankfort, KY presented His Imperial Highness Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Haile-Selassie the Honorary Key to the city of Frankfort (capital city of Kentucky) for his strategic leadership, active participation in designing programs to assist African peacekeeping, reconciliation, and border dispute resolution. The Prince was also honored for his active role in African charitable works, cultural activities and historical preservation, as well as keeping the legacy of the institutions of Ethiopia's ancient monarchy from falling into oblivion.

 

The event was held during the 13th annual interdisciplinary conference on African Studies hosted by Kentucky State University (KSU). This year, the Conference focused on the theme �How will Africa�s growing Economic development Impact the people and the environment?� The conference brought scholars, KSU students and professionals from various disciplines and institutions to KSU to celebrate African heritage.

 

During the event, Professor Gashaw Lake, Dean of the College Professional Studies at KSU introduced His Imperial Highness Prince Ermias, the President of the Crown Council of Ethiopia and the representative of the Ethiopian Crown in exile, as a guest speaker to the participants. Prince Ermias, in his speech, introduced his new initiative to bring pure drinking water to the People of Africa while helping to improve their ecological conditions. The project, which is named "The Prince Ermias Shale-Selassie Water Initiative for Africa" (WIA), is a low-cost, new and environmentally positive technology capable of rapidly transforming life for millions of people, not just in response to emergencies, but as a permanent building block for social development. The WIA offers these new technologies for all and works not only on its own projects, but also with all other aid agencies and foundations to achieve Africa�s renaissance.

 

Professor Lake, who was also one of the coordinators of the annual conference at KSU, praised the Prince�s noble personality as a great man who transformed the Crown Council and his own life into a mission to improve the welfare of Africans wherever they are.

 

*Prince Ermias was named the recipient of the International Strategic Studies Association (ISSA), and was given the Silver Star Award of Outstanding contributions to strategic Progress through humanitarian achievements because of his work for Ethiopian Refugees in Africa.

 

(The 13th Annual Interdisciplinary Roundtable Conference on African Studies was held at the Kentucky State University April 7-9, 2012.)

Since the collapse of the TPLF regime is evident, it is the right opportunity to restore Ethiopia's rightful government back into power the monarchy.

After the 1960 coup in Ethiopia, should had Emperor Haile Selassie I relinquish some of his powers to parliament? By doing so would had made Ethiopia a constitutional monarchy. Also should he had abdicated the throne in favor of his son Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen, who would of been Ethiopia's first constitutional monarch? Would both actions secure the monarchy if Emperor Haile Selassie I had chosen that course of action?

IIRC did not Emperor(I do not remember with one) made the country to a constitutional monarchy. While the Emperor wanted to make it like it is in Europe the nobility stop him and as such he kept some power.
