Chief Executive of Eritrea
|Chief Executive of Eritrea|
|Formation||15 September 1952|
|First holder||Tedla Bairu|
|Final holder||Abiye Abebe|
|Abolished||20 May 1960|
On 20 May 1960 the post was dissolved and replaced by the Chief Administrator of Eritrea, which was appointed by the Emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassie I. This in effect dissolved the independent Federal structure and was a prelude to the official, possibly illegal, annexation of Eritrea as a province of Ethiopia on 14 November 1962.
