Article Summary:
Complementary Elections
The South-West Sanaa court issued an order obliging the Elections Supreme Committee to stop all measures it had taken to organize a re-election in Constituency # 204 in Dhamar. Instead, the court ordered that complementary elections should be held in that constituency.
The voting process in Constituency # 204 was suspended during the April 1997 general elections when armed confrontations broke out between the supporters of two rival parliamentary candidates.
