Nahu Sanay said that Bethlehem has been approached but did not cooperate in an interview, a key part of the nomination process. Leaders of the association gave a press conference at Kenennisa International Hotel to introduce the five finalists, three of them from NGOs, one from a public bank, and one, a fashion entrepreneur.
