Ensuring Oromo Self Government

The OFC believes the Oromo gadaa system, the customary legal systems the Xeer of the Somali, the Dinka of the Afar, and the Baynto of the Tigray constitute our national democratic heritage and participatory political culture. We promote their values as the philosophy of self-government in a participatory democracy.
The Oromo people shall exercise full authority to govern their region and themselves under the government of their choice, informed and undergirded by the ethos of a participatory democracy. On this basis, the OFC commits to ensuring democratic and constitutional governance for the Oromo and other peoples of Ethiopia. Unaccountability and impunity that characterized the EPRDF rule will be ended under the OFC. Our party fights for a political dispensation where political power will be assumed and exercised only constitutionally and governance shall be democratic.
