The Transitional government of Ethiopia was established immediately after the fall of the People's Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. It was led by Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia. Zenawi remained the prime minister of Ethiopia until his death on August 20, 2012.
In 1995 a constitution was adopted which ended the period of transition and created a democratic federal structure for the government. It adopted the name "Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia" for the country, and redrew the provinces into ethnicity based regions, similar to how India formed its states soon after independence.
