YEMEN ON BRINK OF POLITICAL COLLAPSE: NOBEL LAUREATE

Muslim World

Yemeni Nobel peace laureate Tawakkul Karman warned in an interview with AFP that her country’s transition process is on the brink of collapse and demanded ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh be banned from politics, reports said on 5 February. Karman, who was a leading figure during the youth uprising in Yemen in 2011, also claimed that President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi is unable to implement his plans to reshape Yemen’s security forces because he does not control the army. “The main obstacle facing the political transition and threatening its viability is the fact that Ali Abdullah Saleh remains a president of the General People’s Congress,” the former ruling party, Karman said.

She pointed out that Saleh’s party is supposed to present more than 20 per cent of participants in an envisaged national dialogue aimed at drafting a new constitution and preparing for fresh elections in February 2014. “The ousted president is the one to choose the GPC’s representatives,” she said, adding that Saleh’s party “rejects the dialogue.” Karman insisted that the former head of state “should exit politics completely.” “He has a lot of money that he uses to destroy Yemen, harm the political process and execute vengeance,” she charged.
