The Imperial Ethiopian World Federation Inc. is an organisation with worldwide
chapters (IEWF Political Party - I.E.W.F.P.P.) representing sovereign Ethio-Africans and
Nationals in politics within their respective geographical locations.

The International Headquarters is established in Jamaica and the International
President is Bro. Ascento Foxe, who brought the Royal Charter to Jamaica in 1983 for
the implementation of the renewed Charter that was modified from the defunct
Ethiopian World Federation Incorporated. (E.W.F. Inc.) to the Imperial Ethiopian
World Federation Incorporated (I.E.W.F. Inc.), with its ideological base known as
"Modern Ethiopianism".

The I.E.W.F. Inc. in its agitation for Rastafarian Fundamental Rights and Freedom,
addressed the Commission on Constitutional Reform, the Jamaican
Joint Select
Committee of Parliament.  Starting in 1992 and called to give oral testimony on October
12, 1994,  the I.E.W.F. Inc identified itself as operating both as a church (The Church of
Haile Selassie I) and a welfare organisation presenting five points for amendment to
the Constitution of Jamaica.

  1. PROPOSED AMENDMENT ON RECOGNITION AS A RELIGION
  2. PROPOSED AMENDMENT ON THE USE OF HERB AS A SACRAMENT
  3. PROPOSED AMENDMENT ON THE RIGHT OF RASTAFARIAN TO ACKNOWLEDGE
    ETHIOPIAN SOVEREIGNTY
  4. PROPOSED AMENDMENT ON DISCRIMINATION AGAINST RASTAFARIAN
  5. PROPOSAL TO RECOGNISE THE RASTAFARIAN COMMUNITIES AS AN INTEGRAL PART
    OF THE JAMAICAN NATION, AS PART OF AND TO THE CONSTITUTION

The Imperial Ethiopian World Federation Incorporated Political Party was officially
launched on July 16, 1997.
The I.E.W.F. entered the political arena in the 1997
Jamaican General Election with the following five (5) candidates:

Junior Anderson (1st Vice President) - Kingston Central
Leroy Lindsay (General Secretary - St. Andrew Western
Dilpi Champagnie - St. Andrew North Western
Trevor Sharras - St. Catherine South Eastern
Aaron Golding - Clarendon North Central

The I.E.W.F. Inc.'s main advocation, as it's genesis, is in local politics to have
'
representation' for the Rastafarian community and the "Grassroots" people through
the I.E.W.F.P.P.  The I.E.W.F.'s presence and representation in the Jamaican Parliament
is to ensure Rastafarian community representation within Jamaica's democracy and as
a model for I.E.W.F. chapters around the world.
