Second Issue:

Discussing Yemen’s declaration of an independent governing body to run the Southern part of the country.

The formation of a transitional political council to govern the south of Yemen was formed in may 2017. The council consists of 26 members with Aidarous al-Zubaid as their president. Regardless of the unification in Yemen made in 1990, secessionists in the South continue to feel marginalised by the government in Sana’a, and have repeatedly called for independence from the north. As a result of this development the existence of three entities claiming the legitimately over yemen such as Hadi’s in Riyadh, the Houthi-Saleh alliance in Sana’a, in addition to the new UAE-backed alliance claiming to represent the south may arise Therefore, the prospect of a new secession could complicate the war waged by the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthi rebels, who remain in control of the capital Sanaa and swathes of north and west Yemen. It will be this council’s aim to discuss and resolve this issue in the most effective manner.
