Notable trends of federalism, in various forms, have been manifested in different countries of the continent. After the overthrow of the military socialist government (1974–91) by violent armed struggle in 1991, measures have been undertaken to establish an ethnic federalism in Ethiopia. The new structure is a complete departure from the historical centralised system of government in Ethiopia. After the adoption of the 1995 constitution, Ethiopia is officially a Federal Democratic Republic. The federation consists of nine federations that are largely organised in ethnic lines.
