April 1 2004

Disputes have erupted between Governor of Abyan, Fraeed Majwers, and Sheikh Tareq Al-Fadhly, on the definition of the state. The Sheikh insists it means Sultans of “Al- Fadhly” whilst the Governor sees it as the Government in the past and in the present.
The disputes have reached the extent of the formation of forums and groups and efforts have been made to seek supporters from various political streams and journalists and media people.
Political analysts explained that this comes in the scope of conflict between power centers regarding the continuation of loyalty, not qualifications, as the basis for employment and the process of meaningful political and economic reform.
