March 2 1998

Delegations representing the Arab parliaments (lower/upper houses) will start descending on Sanaa in two weeks. The agenda for the 16-18 March gathering of Arab legislators includes talks on internal political evolution, role of the legislature, relations with the executive/judicial branches of authority, inter-Arab cooperation, etc. The delegates will also address what one Yemeni parliamentarian termed as “the colonization of the Gulf region by the USA”.
Yemen’s House of Deputies (lower house) will organize the Sanaa events of the program, while the Consultative Council will arrange the Aden events.
