Abstract: Abstract- National consensus is a fundamental component of national integration and unity in any country, especially in multi-cultural countries. In the Ethiopian context, the contemporary political system is dominated by ethnically based political parties (EBPPs) and polarised politics. The EBPPs are divided on fundamental national issues such as the constitution, federalism and its structural arrangement, past history, national symbols, language, and many others. All these issues need national consensus among all concerned actors for the country’s political stability. The objective of this study is to examine the impact of EBPPs on the national consensus in Ethiopia. Descriptive and exploratory research designs were used with both qualitative and quantitative research approaches. Primary and secondary data sources were employed. Surveys were used to collect primary data from ordinary citizens, as well as key informant interviews with party leaders, government officials, and academics. Secondary data were gathered from published and unpublished documents. The researcher used purposive sampling for the selection of study areas and snowball techniques for survey respondents. For this study, quantitative data was analysed using descriptive analysis while qualitative data was analysed using thematic analysis. The findings of this study revealed that EBPPs have negative impacts on national consensus in terms of provoking antagonistic agendas, focusing on group interests rather than common values, and polarising stances on fundamental national issues. Therefore, all interested parties and elites will reach a national consensus on the fundamental agendas of the country to save it from disintegrating and to ensure sustainable peace and political stability.
