Ethiopia’s parliament approves Sahle-Work Zewde as first female president

Ethiopia’s parliament has approved senior diplomat Sahle-Work Zewde as the country’s first female president, cementing another shift in the country’s political system from Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. Sahle-Work is at present U.N. under-secretary general and special representative of the secretary general to the African Union. She replaces Mulatu Teshome Wirtu, who tendered his resignation to parliament earlier. The president’s post is a ceremonial one in Ethiopia. The prime minister, who is the head of state, holds executive power.
