Assembly's Administrative Body Voices Support for Our People in Demanding Legitimate Rights

The administrative body of the National Assembly of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) held its meeting on Wednesday, chaired by Mr. Ali Abdullah Al-Kathiri, Chairman of the National Assembly. 

In its meeting, which was attended by Mr. Issam Abdo Ali, Deputy Chairman of the Assembly, the Body reviewed the latest developments on the local scene, and the continued deterioration in the service sector in the capital, Aden, and other governorates, as well as the rising popular anger towards this decline in services.

The Body expressed its absolute rejection of the systematic war on services that has recently escalated, reaffirming its full support for the people and their demands to provide the required services that affect their livelihood.

The Body emphasized the need for the representatives of the STC in the government and all bodies to redouble their efforts to activate the visions and radical solutions to these crises that are being used by some forces against the people of the South in order to break their sterling will, asserting the right of the people to express themselves and protest peacefully to demand their rights.

Furthermore, the Body listened to a report from the Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Committee of the National Assembly, presented by the Committee Chairwoman, Hanan Muhammad Farea, in which she reviewed the current status of the STC's foreign relations with international and regional parties and the future role that the Council can play externally to achieve the goal of our people to restore and build the state of the South.

Similarly, the report reviewed the current status of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the accumulated corruption and nepotism in the Attachés and the diplomatic and consular corps over the past years, highlighting the need to support the efforts made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Shaea al-Zandani, to bring about the appropriate reforms in the work of the ministry and its diplomatic missions.

The Body stood before the direct targeting of southern cadres in the Ministry of Health through illegal transfer and shifting procedures, warning against the continuation of this approach, which is aimed at empowering members of a specific political party to control most of the administrations in the ministry.

At the end of its meeting, the body touched on a range of topics and issues on its agenda and took the appropriate action regarding them.
