After some heavily fighting with the Mercenaries of the Republic of Congo the UN troops, the European refugees and some African priest and refugees left the Congo for arrive in Ethiopia. The convoy was accolted by the Emperor and the commander of the pacekeeper forces was hosted in the palace of the Emperor. Also the Emperor Haile Selassie I have make a speech in the Parliament about the UN troops, about their bravery and heroism.

After some weeks many UN troops and European citizens asked at their respectively ambassy for return at home, the French go in the French Somalia as a colonial rapresent of the French Government and the UK, Commonwealth troops and citizens go in Kenya as a safe british colony.

The relations between the various government was good, and also some treaty was write and the Emperor it have make a private discussion with the Pope about the situation in Africa.

The Golpe.

Despite all the things that Selassie and or his government do many, in most case military officials and general criticize the Emperor for be too open at the foreign and in particular in the confront of the Italians, who are circa 100,000 in the late 70s, and also on the lack of democracy, the Parliament wasn't elected via a universal suffrage and the Emperor coud debate, dismiss or close the Parliament if some laws was wrong. 

So on in the March of the 1978 the most democratic part of the parliament sign an agree with the officials of the Armed Forces, that they will help their at mantain order in the parliament and in the government, for the continue at run democratically the Ethiopia, and then the Coup d'Etat started. 

The most important and strategic cities and structure in Ethiopia and Eritrea was occupited by the Army and by the other Armed Forces, with the help of the Police, while in the parliament the democratic forces rassicurate the other parliamentaries that this was only doing for prevent the rise of a communist dictatorship or the abolition of the constitution, so at this words they was unable to do anything, many parliamentaries loyal to Selassie leave the parliament and refuse to obey at a republic, the majority of their agree with the others, and so on the parliament was able to elect Mikael Imru as prime minister of the provisional government, who serve as head of state and lf government until new elections.  

Meanwhile the Army and the Police arrest every person who try to stop there, the only battle in the Coup was that with the Imperial Guard and some member of the Police barricated in the Imperial Palace, after a brief firefight all the members of the Imperial Guard was killed or found dead, mostly from suicide but also for suicide-omicide, only two guards and 5 policeman was found alive and put under arrest.  

With this act the general and the prime minister reunited in the Parliament proclame the creation of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia, a nation base on democracy, liberty and unity. The rest of the royal family was put under arrest and after some debates between the prime minister and the generals they was relesed and conduct info exile in Europe with a airplane of AliSicilia, and from there they woud be reunite with Haile Selassie, ex Emperor of Ethiopia. 

The coup succeed and the population wasn't afraid of that, many Ethiopians think that this woud bring free and fair elections to the country and prosperity. When the royal family arrive in Palermo they annince at Selassie that he was been overtrune by a part of the parliament and a group of officials, so at his word he decide to write a letter and give that at the Ethiopian ambassador in Palermo, the letter say that he is very disappointed by this action, but if my people wanna this so God will want that and of abdicate from the throne.  

The letter arrive at the government and read that, most of the members of the parliaments admir what he do and respect him, but many others think that is a trick only for ask at him to return back and then he will retook the throne, after this the Emperor and his family decide to go at Madrid, as the Bourbon of Slpain have give their asylum.
