Yemen: Hadi returns to Yemen for parliamentarian meeting in Sayoun

Yemen, Sayoun
April 13, 2019 at 16:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi arrived in Yemen after flying in from Saudi Arabia, to participate in a meeting of Yemeni members of the divided parliament in Sayoun on Saturday.

It is Hadi’s first visit since August 2018. The southern port city of Aden has been the base for Hadi’s Saudi-backed government since 2015.

“I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to you, the representatives of our Yemeni people in the House of Representatives, for giving priority to the supreme national interest and the burden of the difficulties, and thus the great efforts to provide a quorum and revitalise the role of this constitutional institution,” said Hadi, addressing the attendees.

At the meeting, the Yemeni parliamentarians elected the leader of the General People's Congress Party Sultan al-Barqani as speaker of parliament.

Meanwhile in Sanaa, the Houthi-led government’s Prime Minister Abdul-Aziz bin Habtour cast his vote in the parliamentary elections, as voters flocked to polling stations in 24 districts to elect representatives in parliament.
