Yemen: General People's Congress names new leader after Saleh's killing

Yemeni General People's Congress named former Agriculture Minister Sadeq Amin Abou Rass as its new leader, at a press conference in Sanaa on Sunday. Abou Rass had succeeded late former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was killed in a roadside attack while trying to flee Sanaa last month. During the press conference, Member of General People's Congress' Standing Committee Hussein Hazeb... Еще stated that Abou Rass had been appointed «to lead the General People's Congress during the coming period.» According to Hazeb, the General People's Congress «reiterates its call for comprehensive national reconciliation,» which includes dialogue between all political forces «away from any external interference or pressure.» Saleh led Yemen for 33 years until an uprising forced him from power in 2011. He returned alongside Houthi rebels, who recently accused him of betrayal after he offered to open negotiations with the Saudi coalition.
