Alliance for Freedom and Democracy

The Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (AFD) is an Ethiopian political party formed 22 May 2006 from the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), the Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD), Ethiopian Peoples' Patriotic Front (EPPF, also known as "Arbegnoch Gimbar" or Patriot's Front), and Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), and the Sidama Liberation Front (SLF). It was created when the leaders from the OLF called on all parties of what is currently the AFD and a few others that turned down the offer, to form an Alliance to coordinate their efforts in toppling the current TPLF government led by Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. Another opposition UEDF was once part of it until it left the coalition.
