A newspaper back page article says the talk about the state of institutions and its role in and independence has greatly increased till people began to believe what they hear. The people have thus forgotten that when the authority, when talks much about something, it does not mean it and it is an indication on its non-existence. The latest scandal is when the state appointed ambassadors from outside the diplomatic career and from some who are renowned of their failure in their posts and their abuse of positions. It is noteworthy these appointments contradict and embarrass the prime minister who had earlier stated that appointment of ambassadors would be from cadres of the foreign ministry that possesses many of qualified talents and experience in diplomatic job and that make such cadres fir for representing Yemen.
