Economic, Social and Cultural Council (ECOSOCC) of the African Union is established guided by the common vision of a united and strong Africa and the need to build partnerships between governments and civil society in order to strengthen cohesion amongst people in such a way that there will be a way through which civil society organizations play their role in the activities of African Union.
The African Union Commission invited Ethiopian Teachers Association to compete for election in the permanent ECOSOCC general assembly and ETA submitted its application on 30 April 2007. The aim of the invitation was to select two CSOs from each member state of the union.
After series of steps conducted by the commission, ETA was selected as a candidate and member of the electoral college to the National CSOs elections to the ECOSOCC generally assembly.
Hence we would like to inform our members and stake holders that ETA is one of the two elected civil society organizations to the ECOSOCC general assembly, the election of which was made by a secret ballot held at Ministry of Justice of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, the competent national authority authorized to manage the election, on 1st April 2008.
