The last that was heard of the two groups was weeks back when Megerssa charged at OLFleadership for failing to rein in their members over security crisis in the state.

The exact nature of the collaboration is not well spelled out. OLF since their return to Ethiopia from exile in Eritrea have entered an agreement with another party, the Oromo Federalists Congress, OFC, to compete in elections slated for 2020.

ODP formerly the Oromo Peoples Democratic Organization, OPDP, is part of a four member bloc forming the ruling Ethiopian Peoples Democratic Front, EPRDF.
