Ethiopia Prime Minister, Desalegn Resigns

Hailemariam Desalegn says he has submitted his resignation as both Ethiopia's prime minister and chairman of the ruling coalition.

Hailemariam's announcement comes amid a political crisis and lingering unrest in the Horn of Africa country, which has been releasing thousands of political prisoners to ease tensions.

"Unrest and a political crisis have led to the loss of lives and displacement of many," Hailemariam said in a televised address on Thursday.

"I see my resignation as vital in the bid to carry out reforms that would lead to sustainable peace and democracy," he said.
