Corrigenda to proclamations and Regulations

DOWNLOAD the pdf version of Corrigenda to proclamations and Regulations.

“A corrigendum of a legislative text is conventionally thought of as a mere rectification of obvious typing mistakes. It is done after the publication of a legislative text. Its purpose is to realign the published legislative text with the original will of the legislative body by removing mistakes that occurred in the publication process. A corrigendum does not contain any provisions on validity or entry into force. It derives its authority from the text it rectifies, including its legitimacy, legal force and the provisions on its temporal application.” Corrigenda in the Official Journal of the European Union: Community Law as Quicksand (Michal Bobek)

The term corrigendum (plural corrigenda) generally refers to an error that is to be corrected in a printed work after publication. It may also be used to denote list of errors in a printed work as a separate page of corrections, known as an errata page.  Merriam Webster(online dictionary)  defines corrigendum as “ an error in a printed work discovered after printing and shown with its correction on a separate sheet” \

In the following list you will find corrrigenda to proclamations and regulations. According to article 11(b) of House of Peoples’ Representatives working procedure and members’ code of conduct (amendment) proclamation no. 470/2005 the power to ‘undertake the technical correction, where deemed necessary’ is an exclusive power of the speaker of the house. There is no monitoring procedure to ensure that any ‘correction’ introduced by the speaker  does not alter or change the substantive content of the proclamation. What is worse, those errors to be rectified by the speaker are not the ones which are detected after publication. Article 11(b) of proclamation no. 470/2005 empowers the speaker to make correction prior to the publication of the proclamation in the Negarit Gazetta. This in effect means that the speaker of the house holds a law making power in the name of correcting errors. Any error before publication is an exclusive matter to be dealt to the house itself. Even though the basic purpose of corrigenda is to ensure that the published text is similar with the draft approved by the house, Ethiopian law making procedure deviates from the basic rules and principles of legislation acceptable in all legal systems.

The Council of Ministers does not have any legislative procedure which is official to the public and approved by law. Hence, no knows who actually makes correction to regulations.
