Opposition Brings Memo before President [Archives:2001/35/Front Page]

August 27 2001

Members of the Supreme Opposition Council, together with the Yemeni Congregation for Reform (Islah) brought a memorandum before the president requesting that amendments be made to the report on the outcome of their meeting with PM Bajammal to discuss resuming talks on the Election Law.
They stated that the article organizing activities of the Legal and Political committees, which were supposed to be formed, was inaccurate. They stressed that the two committees should work jointly, condemning the report which outlines a progressive schedule for the Legal Committee.
The Council abandoned some of the conditions it had earlier set for resuming talks with Bajammal – a matter that made some observers believe that it was dragged to accept the conditions of the ruling party represented by Bajammal.
