The Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM) is a political party in Ethiopia. The party is one of four members of the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front in Ethiopia. The party chairman is Demeke Mekonnen, who replaced Addisu Legesse in 2010.
The Ethiopian People's Democratic Movement (EPDM), the precursor of ANDM, was founded by former members of the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Party (EPRP) and supported by the Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF).It was originally based in Waghimra in Wollo Province, and waged an armed struggle against the Derg in that area starting in 1982. EPDM convened its first organizational conference in Jerba Yohannes, Waghimra, in November 1983. In 1989 EPDM and its long-time ally TPLF united to form the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPDRF).At its third organizational conference in 1994, the EPDM changed its name to Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM), marking its transition from a pan-Ethiopian movement to an ethnic party.In the May 2010 Regional State Council elections, the ANDM won all 294 seats in the Amhara Region
