During the Ethiopian Civil War, the EPRDF was an agitator gathering doing combating the Derg, a military system drove by Mengistu Haile Mariam that was viably in power from 1974 until it was removed by the EPRDF in 1991. During this period, the Derg was liable for the passings of countless adversaries without preliminary in the Ethiopian Red Terror and the 1983–1985 starvation in Ethiopia bringing about 400,000 passings 

 

The EPRDF was shaped by the association of the TPLF and the Ethiopian Peoples Democratic Movement (EPDM) in mid 1989. They were later joined by the OPDO (the Oromo individuals from the TPLF, EPLF, and EPDM) and the Ethiopian Democratic Officers' Revolutionary Movement (a little collection of Derg officials caught by TPLF, most quite at Shire in February 1989, which was later disbanded after the foundation of the Transitional Government of Ethiopia). 

 

Following the breakdown of the People's Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in the mid 1990s, the EPRDF picked up help from the United States. Michael Johns, an Africa master with the Heritage Foundation, wrote in 1991 that "there are some unobtrusively reassuring signs that the front plans to relinquish Mengistu's absolutist practices".
