Mulatu served in various ministerial positions before he was appointed as an Ambassador under the current administration. He is also the executive member of the Oromo Peoples’ Democratic Organization (OPDO).
However, one of the names that has been coming up for the presidency has been the former mayor of Addis Abeba, Berhane Deresa.
