    Haile is an Ethiopian angel. Why not ? He should be given the opportunity; He has the money and he wanted to serve his country. Give the opportunity; I love this man; But he is too kind ; too human,

    • Markos says:

      Alex,
      You have some good suggestions, but you sound a person full of hatred towards the TPLF and current leaders. Meles has never been a weak leader, not even close. What is wrong to come from the country side? Isn’t that true more then 80% of Ethiopians live in rural Ethiopia?

      • Alex says:

        @Markos those old leaders are too much full themselves and are showing their characters by being involved in too much ethnic politics, different bribery issue so now young, rich and matured leaders like Haile Gebresilasie and others must get a chance to lead this poor and turbulent country so that they can pacify the the ethnic tension , the toxic diaspora and the toxic EPRDF cadres..

      • Ilula Lemma says:

        @Markos
        Are U a spokes person of WOYANE(TPLF),whom do you want to convince that WOYANE is leading the country on the right path. Unless you are one of them.

    • Gezaee says:

      Alex you said well; very good points;

      But the problem woyanes have no ear to hear; they are deaf; they have no eyes to see, they are blind; they have no heart to discern; they are arrogant; that is the very problem. As you said it well, the entire Tigrai is accused because of them. The problem is they do not or never understand what you are saying. it is sad so.

      The problem is not diaspora; the problem is woyane trust me; woyane has anti Ethiopia policies. Most of the policies are unpatriotic and antiEthiopia. Landlocking Ethiopia just to pay debt to Egypt money they took?
      Many weird policies. But I do not agree with article 39 upto mengetel. The federal system is good, but mengentel lemasfelege? Mengentel was introduced to let Eritrea go. Megenetl asfelagi aydelem. Kiloloch beethnic mederegu is also bad. Federalism is a good thing, but not ethnic federalism; you can guarantee freedom of people without ethnic federalism and article 39.

  4. eshetu says:

    Haile you are an excellent individual and athlet. Please don’t inject yourself to weyane politics. You will be accountable once the racist regime is deposed which would surely come soon or later.

  5. Yinegal says:

    This is un believable! what is the intent of asking and answering in English to begin with. The language is not the tool to lead a country and it has never been a criteria in this planet at all. Please do not encourage this, we are the people with it’s own language, alphabet and calendar. Watch your step Mr, Dr, Athlete. Tell us in Amharic so that 90million will support you.

    • galaxy says:

      yinegal,
      haile gave the interview to CCTV not to ETV. So, he can not use amharic. otherwise he would need a transletor.

  6. Ermi says:

    What goals to achieve? As a president, you can do nothing. The presidency is ceremonial. It is better you run your businesses and make money.

    Peace and love to all!

  7. Abi says:

    Dear Readers:
    I wanna raise two points about this issue:

    The first point is that since the Ethiopian government system is a kind of ‘parliamentary’ type where the Prime Minister is the head of government just like the Israeli and Great Britain and where the president is a puppet organ,in my view,let alone the famous Haile,any layman can be a president in the current situation of the country.
    The second point is that “Is that possible to replicate a success in one area(say Athletics) to a different area (say Politics or being a president)?”

  8. teshome says:

    There is no gimmicks. It’s just my way of saying, Haile Gebreselassie is second to none to be a president of Ethiopia. Hailes’s life and work speaks for itself. All Ethiopians will commended him except the few toxic Diasporas who are always living in day dream.
    More Haile is a good guy, soft spoken, I believe he had all the quality of leadership and he is known for preaching and nurturing the mechanism of culture of tolerance in Ethiopia. A good showcase for this Haile was an instrument and a skill negotiator for the release of Prominent leaders of Kinijt but the return he got from terrorist Birhanu Nega and his likes Sisay Agena was very depressing. Had it not been for the best effort of Haile, Sisay Agena wouldn’t have had the chance to breath fresh air.
    God bless you Haile, I wish you thousand birth day to celebrate.
    I strongly advice EPRDF and my government to think seriously about Haile Gebreselassie’s dream.
    …But one thing is clear here the doomsayers toxic Diasporas will start biting a common sound track labeling THE ETHIOPIAN ICON, Haile Gebreselassie, AS WOYANE AND SOME FOUL ADJECTIVES.
    I am not a fortune teller, it won’t take too long to name and blame Haile from Toxic Diasporas

  9. Henok says:

    Dear Hail….I would like to see people like you in this brutal politics…may be it might help to reflect a new views….anyways ….BUT NOT MAKE ANY MISTAKE …THE ETHIOPIAN CONSTITUTION DOES NOT PROHIBIT POLITICAL MEMBERS TO BE A PRESIDENT. ….. LIKE Dr. Negaso

  10. A. says:

    As a person who gave so much to his people and his country, he would certaibly be a much better option for the president post than those useless weyane gangs, who know nothing but looting and destroying the country. So Haile, go for it and save the country from the criminal weyane thugs.

  11. Asrat says:

    Haile can do.
    Go for it now.

  12. Mario says:

    Haile, we will be glad to support you as much as we can! I think you could serve the people properly!

  13. Zera-Mariam Seyoum says:

    Why not, he has good name recognition than anyone in the country at the moment. He is also a known patriot and proved it in the international arena. Most of all, imagine Haile greeting foreign leaders with his great smile. On top of that, I couldn’t believe my ears listening to Haile commenting inside Ethiopian Parliament on corruption. His opinion made more sense than some of the PMs.

  14. ተዉኝ ባካቹ says:

    ውይ ሃይልየ ምነው ሩጫ እና ኣገር መምራት እኮ ይለያያል ምነው ክብርህን በራስህ ግዜ ልታዋርደው ወሰንክሳ ኣይ ኢትዮጵያ ኣገሬ ኣሁንስ ተስፋ ቆረጥኩብሽ ኣገሬ ለሆድ ብቻ ነው ሚታሰበው እንዴ ያ ሁላ ብር እያለም ኣሁንም ላገር ማሰብየለም

  15. Meron says:

    Haile would be a good president in Ethiopia. I will vote for him.

    In the mean while, Dr. Berhanu’s second part of the leaked video has been released in youtube.

  16. ABC says:

    Hi Dawit have you seen the latest stupidity by Birhanu?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBh82rF7bF8

  17. Yarda Lij says:

    Why not? We have a president who is very opportunist and has done a lot of harm than good deeds through out three regimes. I personally think that Haile G/Sillase has done more positive things to our beloved country, and would do much better, than the one we have now at the National Palace. We do neeed leaders and popular figures who can unite us than divide us!!!

    Long live Haile!!!

  18. hermi says:

    Haile-I see in you a good parlamentarian voicing peoples issues.And you can be an independent. It will make the Parliament more lively. Go for it. Like the Philippine boxer, you can use your goodwill to address so many issues afflicting our nation.

  19. Teshale says:

    Why are these two morons struggling to communicate in English. Couldn’t they find one native language to use.

    Haile, we owe so much to you for upholding our country and its flags high up on the international arena. But our country needs somebody who shows how to use his/her mind not just legs.

  20. Abba Tobia says:

    Haile Gebreselassie in the palace of Haile selassie? i feel like vomiting.

    When Woyane is outsted, this Palace has to be destroyed

  21. EthioZena says:

    Running for a president? are you joking? He can’t be a president or a prime minster and this is why:

    1.He doesn’t have the ability to give False promises
    2. He doesn’t have the ability to lie or ignoring people
    3. He doesn’t have the ability to ignore the real issue
    4. He doesn’t have the ability to tell people what ever they need to hear and hope they are stupid enough to fall for it.

    Unless he have at least these experience, there is NO WAY he can be a president or a prime minister in Ethiopian. It is a well known proven fact!!! what is he thinking?

  22. Ilula Lemma says:

    Haile, EPRDF will welcome you to run on their behave since you showed your loyalty for WOYANE by crocodile tears for late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. Instead of wishing higher office in undemocratic government Haile should side with other Ethiopians and opposition party like blue party to show his grievance against this government, or at least not to be part of WOYANE government.

  23. Michael says:

    Haile is the member of EPRDF. So, he can replace the oldman Girma soon.

  24. Beza Teza says:

    Haile and many other Ethiopians are excellent at their chosen fields. But whole banch of Ethiopian politicians are damn worse even at their chosen fields of political activities. But to say that these successful Ethiopian sport personalities must exchange roles with failed politicians who failed MAMMA ETHIOPIA amounts to a gigantic stupidity to be further multiplied with more stupidities for the further extention of national failures after failures. Ethiopians are good at letting the tail lead the head and often crash against stone walls every now and then thereby killing both the tail and the head. Good luck though! 🙂

  25. Good Man says:

    Abba Tobia,

    What are you talking about? The Ethiopian palace on the small hill is not occupied by the tplf currently but by the good prime minister Hailemariam Desalegn who needs our assistance to stand on his feet and make neutral national decisions that benfit all citizens equally. The PM is NOT a BAD man even though he is surrounded by tplf sharks soon going to lose all of their sharky teeth with which they bite party beef.

  26. Gudegna Hager says:

    Well, it is this kind of stupidity that drives out educated Ethiopians from their country. To begin with, in the current system crafted by “bilta bilt” woyanes being a President has no power and I simply don’t understand this famous athlete wants to put himself in this position. He has the fame and money to live his life and actually use some of his fortune to do good in the country … like opening hospitals, schools, etc.

    What really bothers me the most is the fact that Haile is just a successful athlete with no background and experience to be a politician or a government leader. There are thousands of highly qualified Ethiopians who can run the country efficiently and being famous athlete just doesn’t cut it. Man, stay away from woyanes as their demise is not far away.

  27. gud eko new says:

    This ‘ bantu’ might know how to run but not for office.

  28. Dima Dimanco says:

    If Haile want to run for the president or prime minister that is his right. but he have to have a solution and agenda to present for the people on different issue and problems. because leading a country is a complex and sophisticated it is not one way achievement like distant running or baseness. instead he can use his fame and achievement by being a roll model to alleviate the people awareness about democracy and an responsibility and he can play a great roll also by being a mediator between oppositions and the government for a peaceful civil democratic process. that is one thing we don’t have and need. that is what the let great singer Bob Marley did between the two rivals of his country. Thank you Haile this come from genuine love of your country.

  29. Hunde says:

    Does this guy think a country is being led by leg?

    He has never done any humanitarian project in Ethiopia for those marginalized and negelected…. he is too mean.

    He is too opportunistic.
