Yemeni President Abdrabuh Mansur
Hadi has been dismissed from the lead-
ership of his party after being accused of
soliciting UN sanctions against his pred-
ecessor Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The General People s Congress yesterday
said it appointed two members to the posts
of vice president and secretary general in
place of Hadi, who became president after
Saleh was forced to resign in February 2012,
after a year of bloody protests.
The UN Security Council, a day earlier,
imposed sanctions on Saleh and allied two
Shia Houthi rebel commanders for threat-
ening the peace and stability of the country
and obstructing the political process.
The three men, including military leaders
Abd al-Khaliq al-Houthi and Abdullah Yahya
al-Hakim, are now subject to a global travel
ban and asset freeze.
Saleh denied seeking to destabilise Yemen and his
party had warned that any sanctions on the former
president or "even waving such a threat would have
negative consequences on the political process".
The UN decision came after thousands of Saleh
and Houthi supporters filled the streets of Sanaa to
protest the move to punish the ex-leader, accused
of being the main backer of the rebels.
Saleh stepped down in 2011 as part of a US-backed,
Gulf-brokered deal after months of protests against
But Hadi s backers accuse Saleh of undermining
his successor. Many believe Saleh, who remains a
powerful political player, helped Houthi rebels in the
past months as they swept into Sanaa.
Yemen on Friday announced a new 36-member
government intended to pull the country out of polit-
But violence continued to rage across the coun-
try.Yesterday, al-Qaeda said its fighters in central
Yemen killed dozens of Houthi rebels in twin attacks
that included a suicide bombing.
Tribal sources also said dozens died in the attacks,
including when a suicide bomber rammed an explo-
sives-laden car into a medical centre converted into
a barracks by the Houthi rebels in the Rada region
of Manaseh. Al Jazeera
Yemen president sacked
from party leadership
Yemen s General People s Congress, the party
of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, has rejected
the newly formed government, announcing that
the party s majority parliamentary bloc will not
support a confidence vote backing it.
The Shia Houthi rebels, who are in control of
the capital Sanaa, also rejected the new government
in its current form, calling for a Cabinet reshuffle
and the removal of a number of newly appointed
"This cabinet is disappointing and did not adhere
to the agreed criteria of the peace and national
partnership agreement," a Houthi statement said.
Yemen, which has been in political turmoil due
to clashes between rival factions, had announced
the formation of a new government on Friday after
weeks of unsuccessful attempts.
