Abdulaziz Al-Saqqaf Resigns from CC [Archives:1998/31/Local News]

August 3 1998

Professor Abdulaziz Al-Saqqaf, member of the Consultative Council (CC) and Chairman of the Human Rights, Liberties and NGOs Committee, tendered his resignation to President Ali Abdullah Saleh, on July 30th. Saqqaf said that the lack of dynamics and vision made the CC a lethargic organ which contributed little to the nation, in spite of tremendous potential. His resignation letter also pointed that President Saleh uses the CC as dumping grounds for individuals he wants to appease, but who he doesn’t care to keep on active duty elsewhere.
