220 new appointments in Yemen by political affiliation

Filed under: GPC, Islah, JMP, Yemen — by Jane Novak at 6:11 pm on Friday, October 19, 2012

President Hadi did what he’s supposed to do; he split the ministries and appointments between the GPC and Islah. The failure of the US sponsored GCC transition plan is that it reinforces partisanship in a hyper-partisan context. The Yemeni parliament- which has been sitting since 2003- deadlocked and was unable to implement required electoral reforms or any reforms for that matter. The stalemate following the 2006 presidential election led to the delay of the 2009 parliamentary election. The opposition parties had little to do with the 2011 revolution in its inception, organization or demands. The revolution was a reaction to the dysfunction of the party system. Yet the US plan divides the ruling apparatus between Saleh’s ruling party (the GPC) and the opposition coalition (the JMP) mainly the Islamic party Islah.

In the process the Obama plan, or the Feierstein plan rather, gave the fundamentalists in Islah a greater credibility, power and status than they had at the height of the revolution when the demand for a civil state (not military and not theocratic) was gaining traction . At the same time, moderates, civil society and democrats remain entirely marginalized and excluded from the political scene. The revolutionary goal was to overcome ingrained corruption, nepotism and cronyism and establish a system based on merit, talent and ability. But when the US divided up the ministries by party, affiliation to the moribund political system took precedence. Again it was loyalty over talent in determining the following 179 229 new administrators. The new hegemony of Islah in the Sanaa school system is concerning for many.

RSF Unveils Dividing Lists in President’s Appointments
Yemenat
The revolution salvation front RSF has disclosed the most important violations involving the president’s decrees, rejecting public job sharing and dividing policy.
The RSF expressed an increasing concern over public job dividing policy, condemning the revolution circumvent and warning about so-called counter-revolution exercised by some forces.
In a statement made by RSF, it called honest national forces to express its anger and to seriously consider managing violations and general resolution manipulation. It also called the President of Yemen to dissociate the military and tribal forces that said it sought tight control of the state through imposing appointing loyal figures.
The technical committee chairman of the peaceful revolution salvation front MP Ahmed Saif Hashid called Islah and GPC affiliating youth forces to free themselves from traditional forces’ dominance of their parties which he said it once again sought control of public affair and exploit country resources for their advantage.
The RSF reported names of the figures appointed by presidential decrees according to their partisan affiliation, with names of the provinces they belong to. The list showed influential figures monopolizing of overall military forces appointments, with general Ali Muhsen, representative of Islah military Flank, ranking as first. The president Hadi ranked as second, followed by the tribal flank representative of Islah party.

While continuing unveiling exercises of political Forces,
RSF Calls People of Yemen to Reject Sharing and Dividing Policy in Judicial Sector
The dividing and sharing policy continues to be unveiled by PRSF. Significant positions in ministries and corporations are being divided among feuding political parties and influential figures, especially Islah, GPC, president of the republic, general ali Muhsen, sons of Alahmar, with purpose of intensify control over all civil and military apparatuses. The judicial sector is most prominent. The RSF calls public opinion to reject such policy that damage the homeland and hamper aspirations of its peoples, and to pay attention to the divided posts in judicial sector, which would be core of the hoped new civil democratic state if its appointments were made as per standards of competency.

Yemen opposition forms 143 member national council, updated

Filed under: JMP, Saada War, South Yemen, reconfigurations — by Jane Novak at 10:18 am on Wednesday, August 17, 2011

It doesn’t appear to be the transitional council, but rather a unified front to lead the rev to the point of the transitional council. Its a good step if they make an action plan, drawing on input from their constituencies, as opposed to devolving into a top heavy, bickering entity that issues statements. They better have an English spokesperson unlike the JMP, CCYRC, Civil Coalition, the Southern Movement and the Houthis who all left the regime’s propaganda statements unchallenged in English for a decade. Photos.

Sahwa Net – Yemen opposition parties, the ruling party’s defected politicians met on Wednesday and formed a 143-member national council which aims at uniting various groups against the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The council included representatives of civil society, members of the secessionist Southern Movement, and the northern Shiite Huthi rebels, as well as independent activists

According to Yemen’s opposition parties, the national council will lead the forces of the revolution until Ali Abdullah Saleh’s departure.

The opposition meeting was held at a hall in Sanaa University amid tight security enforced by the army’s First Armoured Division led by General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, who defected to the opposition in March.

More on the anticipated function from the WaPo:

Salem Mohammed Bassindwa, a top opposition figure, says youth groups and political parties named 143 council members to represent the people, a rare show of unity.

“This is a revolutionary council aimed at toppling the rule of the (Saleh) family and the remnants of this regime,” Bassindwa said. He clarified that it is “not an alternative to the government.”

The council members will elect a president and an executive body. It will also form “popular committees” in Yemeni cities, to be in charge of “protecting citizens’ properties and state institutions” at time of crisis and street clashes, he said.

Saleh objects to restructuring the military prior to the early elections, Updated after Riyadh retro speech

Filed under: GCC, JMP, Military, Post Saleh, Transition, reconfigurations — by Jane Novak at 11:05 am on Monday, August 15, 2011

Update: SABA provided a translation of Saleh’s speech to the tribal leaders which indicates that he is back to square one, elections in 2013. Same old rhetoric applied to the new oppositionists: he trashes the youth as Marxists, Royalists seeking to restore the Imamate, and the Taliban. How many times have we heard it before? He accuses the tribal elements of stealing the rev from the youth and says, without a trace of irony, he is committed to a transition of power.

SABA:

In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate,

Let me first congratulate you on the occasion of the blessed month of Ramadan. I salute you and pay tribute of respect to you for convening such a conference and I hope that it will conclude with effective decisions and recommendations. I have here with me my brothers parliament speaker Yahya al-Ra’i and prime minister Ali Mohammad Mujawar. They also salute you and salute your conference, which is being held amid dangerous and important circumstances.

We must discuss all the available data, all the events in Yemen, and how to get our country out of the crisis – the crisis which was fabricated by some political forces to reach power. We welcome the opposition and tell them that “you can reach power through ballot boxes, not through coups, statements, denunciation, insults, or irresponsible speeches.” (Read on …)

Yemen’s opposition parties demand international investigation of protester deaths

Filed under: Donors, UN, JMP, Post Saleh, Protest Fatalities, protest statements — by Jane Novak at 12:52 pm on Sunday, August 7, 2011

There are a lot of murders that require an international investigation, many occurred before the rev, but any international investigation of the crimes of the Saleh regime would be a good step.

Sahwa Net- Alliance of Yemen opposition, the Joint Meeting Parties, has demanded to carry out an international probe on all mass murder atrocities in which hundreds of peaceful protestors were killed and wounded in Sana’a, Taiz and other governorates.

In a statement, JMP also demanded to investigate into the incident in which President Ali Abdullah Saleh and his aides were injured in a presidential palace attack and transferred to Saudi Arabia for treatment, pointing out that the Yemeni regime tries to blackmail opposition parties and other political opponents through accusing them of the incident.

In a statement, JMP said that the Yemeni regime still launches its war against Yemenis, kills peaceful protesters in Sana’a, Taiz , and other governorates.

This weeks compendium of ridiculous US statements about Yemen, including during the Brennan visits to Saleh in SA and with Prince Ahmed and the JMP in Sanaa, comes on the same day the US and the international community recognized the Libyan rebels as the legitimate authority in Libya. In Yemen though the US continues to blame the protesters for the uptick in al Qaeda activity, instead of the illogical and unprincipled US policy fostering the stalemate. The Obama administration also threatened the JMP that the international community would not to recognize a transitional council, should one be formed as the protesters have been demanding. Such a transitional council would be “meaningless” said another western diplo because of the presence of a parliament, VP and government. The reality is that the current parliament’s term expired two years ago and prior to that, it functioned as a rubber stamp for Saleh and an instrument of grand corruption. The parliament is another rigged institution of GPC hegemony, comprised of loyalist Sheikhs, businessmen and active duty generals. Most of the reformists within the GPC resigned in March.

In Saudi Arabia Brennan asked Saleh “to fulfill expeditiously his pledge to sign the GCC-brokered agreement for peaceful and constitutional political transition in Yemen,” according to a White House statement. How could Brennan even say it with a straight face? The US is just stalling.

Political developments and impasse in Yemen

Filed under: JMP, Post Saleh, USA, Yemen — by Jane Novak at 2:29 pm on Wednesday, June 22, 2011

President Saleh is alternately returning to Yemen within days or is negotiating for asylum in Germany or another European countries after the UAE refused the request.

At Asharq, a good profile of the al Ahmars.

The Yemen Post reports on a new broader opposition coalition: Opposition parties in Yemen announced that they would soon create a strong national coalition involving all the factions in the Yemen political arena. Mohammed Mutawakil, secretary general of the Popular Front party said that the new coalition will involve the Joint Meeting Parties, youth leaders, Houthis, Yemeni leaders in exile, and the Justice and Building party. “The coalition will soon be announced and it is now in its final stages of preparation,” said Mutawakil.

News of the YR reports on more diversion of CT assets for use against the protesters: The communications system granted to the Coast Guard to combat terrorism was transferred to Sana’a and used by the family of Ali Saleh against the peaceful revolution.

A petition by over 100 tribal leaders and clerics including al Zindani calls on Saleh to step down and for new elections within two months

A US non-governmental contractor finds an advanced missile responsible for the palace attack: Aloula newspaper quoted a Yemeni official as saying that the missile an advanced Russian rocket. “The guided missile held a Russian name, FOGAZ,” the paper said.

Gates envisions a post-Saleh world:

Arab News 6/16:Gates also sounded a cautiously optimistic note about developments in Yemen, where the government and opposition tribes have engaged in armed clashes, pushing the country toward civil war. He said things have calmed down a bit since President Ali Abdullah Saleh left for neighboring Saudi Arabia on June 5 for medical treatment of wounds he suffered in an attack on his compound in Yemen.

“I don’t think you’ll see a full-blown war there,” Gates said. “With Saleh being in Saudi Arabia, maybe something can be worked out to bring this to a close” by finding an accommodation among Saleh’s family, the opposition tribes and the military.

JMP willing to sign CT agreement with US, EU

Abdel Rahman Ba Fadel says the French aid workers were kidnapped because France called for Saleh to step down, unfortunately a likely explanation. He asks the west to step in.

Yemen’s opposition would be willing to sign an agreement with the West to combat al-Qaeda in Yemen, if Ali Abdullah Saleh, the country’s president, steps down, according to an opposition official.

Abdel Rahman Ba Fadel, a member of Yemen’s opposition Islah party, told Al Jazeera that the country’s opposition had contacted the office of the US ambassador in Yemen to this effect. At Youtube

JMP signed, Saleh next

Filed under: GPC, JMP, Presidency, Transition — by Jane Novak at 4:28 am on Sunday, May 22, 2011

Yemen Post: The Joint Meeting Parties, the opposition bloc in Yemen, signed on Saturday a GCC-brokered power-sharing deal yet to bear the signature of President Saleh who insisted on concluding that early tomorrow morning.
The GCC Secretary General, Abdul Latif Al-Zayani, arrived in Yemen late today for a fourth visit to push the West-backed deal, which was unveiled in April.
Al-Zayani failed on his previous visits to secure the plan as Saleh backed twice from signing at the last minute.
President Saleh will ink it later tonight or tomorrow morning to resign in a month after 33 years in office.

As usual an excellent analysis and overview in The Trench:

Saleh’s rhetoric also portends to conflict rather than a “peaceful transition.” Rather than demonstrate any semblance of rational thought, Yemen’s embattled president proceeded to contradict himself with his normal slander. Hitting the JMP first, Saleh declared that the opposition could never defeat him through “the ballot box.” Instead, the “Joint Conspiracy Parties want to reach power through rivers of blood.”

He then blamed the JMP and AQAP for every death and injury. Why, then, does he need an immunity clause if nothing is his fault?

Yemen’s Baghdad Bob, Tariq al Shamy, spews yet more garbage

Filed under: GPC, JMP, Media, Yemen — by Jane Novak at 8:49 am on Saturday, May 14, 2011

A few days ago the Yemeni Defense Ministry urged soldiers not to hesitate when shooting pro-democracy protesters (see (Xinhua) ) and now Tariq al Shamy, Yemen’s official liar in chief, is scolding the JMP for describing the statement as a declaration of war. Al Shamy is quite the propagandist and normally says the opposite of what is true.

Almotamar.net – Sana’a- Head of the Information Office at the General People’s Congress (GPC), the ruling party in Yemen, Tareq al-Shamy has Saturday disapproved interpretations by the opposition Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) of what was mentioned in the speech of President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the massive gathering on the Friday of Unity at Sabeen Square in the capital Sana’a.

Al-Shamy queried does the JMP view the call for dialogue as a call for war? Does the rejection of law-violating acts and acts of violence and sabotage, and facing them is considered by the JMP as a call for war?

Saleh’s latest ploy- will sign agreement in Yemen

Filed under: Diplomacy, GCC, GPC, JMP, Presidency, protests — by Jane Novak at 8:44 pm on Sunday, May 1, 2011

The latest load of garbage: Saleh isn’t rejecting the agreement but is insisting the steps be implemented in order including an end to the protests and the rebellion by military units and the temporary exile of those causing tension and a whole range of steps before he steps down. Its a no go, especially since the protesters themselves reject the deal wholesale. This is just more stalling and dancing. its important to keep in mind that the Saada War re-ignited six times primarily because the state reneged on the terms of its own cease fire agreement.

The most important development over the week-end was the destruction of the protesters camp in Aden using tanks and artillery.

AAl-Shamy denies President’s not to sign the GCC initiative
Monday, 02-May-2011
Almotamar.net – Sana’a-The Head of the Information Office at the General People’s Congress (GPC) Tareq al-Shamy demised Sunday what was reported by some media outlets that President Ali Abdullah saleh refuses to sign the Gulf Cooperation council (GCC) inititiative for resolving the political crisis in Yemen.

Al-Shamy affirmed President Saleh displayed full readiness to sign the GCC initiative , whether after signing it by representative of the GPC and the Nations Democratic Alliance Parties (NDAP) and the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) or that the JMP goes to Riyadh and Secretary General of the GC returns to Sana’a with a document to be signed by all in Sana’a , attended by chairman of the GCC states Foreign Ministers Sheikh Abdullah bi Zayed and President Saleh will sign with the JMP for the GPC and its allies and chairman of the JMP Dr Yassin Saeed Nouman to sign for the JMP and its partners.

The Politicization of Yemen’s Youth Revolution Nadia al-Sakkaf

Filed under: GPC, JMP, Yemen, protests — by Jane Novak at 10:25 am on Saturday, April 30, 2011

From the Carnegie Endowment, an excellent piece by Nadia al Saqqaf, Editor of the Yemen Times. Worth a full read but here’s a piece:

Youth Excluded from Gulf Initiatives

Although the youth were the ones to start Yemen’s revolution, they have been absent from high-level talks in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi to address the crisis. Politicians on both sides say that this is because the youth are divided and do not have a unified leadership to invite. Indeed, today there are some 72 activist groups represented in Change Square, many of which are active online, particularly on Facebook. There are attempts to merge them into larger groups, but these efforts are taking longer than anticipated.

The problem for Yemen’s youth is that they had never exercised democracy in any true organizational sense before now. Except for a few activists, who are still divided among themselves on ideological and intellectual levels, the rest of the revolution’s youth have no idea how to organize themselves or how to draft a political program. Thus they remain easy prey for experienced politicians, whether they are pro-regime or opposition.

Saleh afraid of coup if he leaves Yemen to sign agreement

Filed under: GCC, GPC, JMP, Presidency, Saudi Arabia, USA, protests — by Jane Novak at 10:22 am on Saturday, April 30, 2011

Saleh was never going to honor the GCC plan anyway, and his balking at leaving the country is reasonable (there very well could be a coup) and another tactic to encourage yet more concessions and reset the clock.

CNN: Yemen’s president says he won’t leave the country to sign a hard-fought political deal because he fears his departure could spark a coup, a senior ruling party official told CNN on Saturday.

The stance threatens to collapse an agreement brokered by the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council to end the violent political standoff across Yemen, still reeling this week from one of the deadliest days in months of protests that have pitted demonstrators against President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Yemen’s JMP sets 2 week deadline for Saleh’s exit from power

Filed under: GCC, JMP, Military, Presidency, Saudi Arabia, protests — by Jane Novak at 8:50 am on Thursday, April 14, 2011

They decline to attend talks in Riyadh. Saleh and Ali Mohsen accept the proposal for dialog, the US and EU support the idea, the JMP and the protesters reject it. If the JMP had gone to Riyadh, they would have lost all credibility with the protesters. Its unclear what the JMP are going to do after the two weeks when Saleh is still in power. Whatever promises the GCC extracts from Saleh will be broken. Furthermore the exclusion of the southern mobility from the whole process is a big mistake.

AJE Yemen’s opposition has set a two-week deadline for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step aside, rejecting a Saudi-brokered, Gulf-backed initiative to end the country’s political turmoil.

“We have renewed our emphasis on the need for speeding the process of (Saleh) standing down within two weeks. Therefore we will not go to Riyadh,” Mohammed al-Mutawakkil, a prominent opposition leader, said on Thursday, referring to the proposed talks in the Saudi capital.

This comes a day after five people were killed in the Yemeni capital Sanaa as forces loyal to a defected army general and pro-government fighters clashed, Al Jazeera’s correspondents said. (Read on …)

JMP issues statements re cooperation and calling for international community to restrain Saleh

Filed under: Hodeidah, Ibb, JMP, National Dialog Committee, Taiz, USA, protests — by Jane Novak at 5:01 pm on Monday, April 4, 2011

There seems to be a few fake announcements coming out of the south. But the following JMP statement is real enough, a tad late, not issued in English and lacks a contact number etc. Below the fold, JMP calls for international community to take action to stop the blood shed and the US takes a less than clear position.

Yemen Post: Any government after the current regime in Yemen will be a strong ally of the international community in the war against terrorism and Al-Qaeda, spokesmen for the Joint Meeting Parties, the opposition coalition, said on Monday. The statement comes amid U.S. warnings of Al-Qaeda in Yemen amid the escalating unrest, but as the U.S. is now suggesting that Saleh stand down.

Muhammad Qahtan said the coming regime will be better than the Saleh regime which exploited the issue of Al-Qaeda and the war against terrorism to deceive the world and use the anti-terror funds for personal interests.

” Meanwhile, we welcome the interest of the GCC countries in Yemen’s stability and security as well as their support to the choice of the Yemeni people, who have been staging protests and sit-ins to call for the ouster of President Saleh. The efforts of the U.S and EU envoys to Yemen to prevent further deterioration of the country amid the current crisis are also welcome,” he said. (Read on …)

New 5 point plan by opposition parties, groups in Yemen

Filed under: JMP, Yemen, protest statements, reconfigurations — by Jane Novak at 3:09 pm on Saturday, April 2, 2011

OT: http://yemenrightsmonitor.blogspot.com/ is a good source for English updates and reports by eyewitnesses

on topic: The plan was drafted by the JMP, political party coalition, and the National Dialog Council, an civil society initiative of Hamid al Ahmar and others. Its a very good idea to include the former military commanders in the south in the transition’; they have training, know the lay of the land and are not part of the current blackmarket network of criminal activity and subversion. Whether they would agree is another story. From Nasser Arabyee:

The Yemen opposition agreed on a -point plan for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to hand over the power:

1) The President Saleh should announce his step-down and transfer all his powers to his deputy, Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi.

2) Mr. Hadi should immediately re-structure the security agencies, the national security, the central security, and the republican guards, to make them function according to the constitution and laws far from nepotism (these three agencies are run now by two nephews and a son of Saleh).

3) Reaching a compromise with the new president (Mr. Hadi) about the transitional power through the following : A) A transitional council in which all parties and categories including the youth and women for conducting a comprehensive dialogue with everyone inside and outside Yemen, about all issues including the issue of the south, and creation of the civil state based on parliamentary system and proportional electoral system. B) Formation of a committee of experts to do constitutional reforms in the light of the results of the dialogue. C) Formation of a national unity government chaired by the opposition, in which all parties and categories including the young people should be represented. D) A temporary council of respected military commanders in which all components should be represented including those military officers and commanders who were forced to retire after the 1994 war.

4) Formation of high commission on elections and referendum, to conduct the referendum on the new constitution and conduct parliamentary and presidential elections.

5) Confirmation of the right to peaceful demonstrations and expressions, and investigations into the attacks on the demonstrators especially the massacres in Aden , Sana’a and Abyan, and put those responsible on trial and compensate the families of those who were killed and injured.

Saleh: no more concessions

Filed under: JMP, Presidency, Yemen, protests — by Jane Novak at 3:24 pm on Sunday, March 27, 2011

Positions harden all around. Thugs attack female protesters in Ibb, 15 injured.

Saleh went from saying he would go in 2013, to the end of the year, to the end of the week, to the end of the day and back to 2013 again with the GPC suggesting forming a new govt to get them there. The time bomb in Yemen is Saleh.

Almotamar.net, Saba - President Ali Abdullah Saleh said on Sunday that he would not offer more concessions in future. This came in President Saleh’s speech at the fourth session of the General People’s Congress (GPC)’s Standing Committee held Sunday in the Police College in the capital Sana’a and attended by over one thousand GPC members.

He noted that all concessions have been made by him so far were not decided individually, but in coordination and agreement with the GPC’s leadership. He said,” When we respond to demands is not out of weakness but to avoid destabilization security of the homeland , bloodshed and killing of souls.” (Read on …)

Now he says hes staying until 2013!

A clear overview of the whole picture from: Walid al Saqqaf.

Update: al Qirby denies the Reuters report, saying it was an inaccurate quote. The blame game now settles on the GPC That’s why Saleh reversed his decision not to run in 2006, the GPC begged him to be their candidate as there was no one else in the entire party with the capacity to run Yemen. Imagine how much better off Yemen would be now if Saleh had kept his word, but I guess you cant think like that, Saleh never keeps his word. I really hope he doesn’t set fire to Yemen on the way out. The longer this takes, the more nervous its making me.

SANAA (Reuters) – A deal on a peaceful transition of power in Yemen could come as early as Saturday and would be based on an offer by President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down by year-end, Foreign Minister Abubakr al-Qirbi said…”I hope it will be today, before tomorrow,” Qirbi, who is serving as caretaker foreign minister, told Reuters in an interview, adding that the time frame of a transfer of power by Saleh could be negotiated.

Saleh, who oversaw the 1990 unification of north and south Yemen and emerged victorious from a civil war four years later, told tribes in Sanaa on Saturday that he would “work to avoid bloodshed using all possible means.”

He said on Friday he was ready to relinquish power to forestall more bloodshed but only to what he called “safe hands” after weeks of street demonstrations demanding his departure. (Read on …)

Article also notes Abdelmalik al Houthi’s earlier statement supporting the right of people to peaceful protest. I find it astounding the nearly a decade after their establishment, the JMP is still unable to issue a statement in English. But even in Arabic, its an ambiguous statement. Update: but to follow is a full English translation of the al Tagheer article:
