April 26 2007

SANA'A, April 24) the Shura Council held the first session on Tuesday to discuss the draft of the reform law on the local authority election. The new reforms dictate electing governors and the chiefs of districts in all Yemeni governorates and not to be appointed.

About four members of the shura council had refused the new reform procedures to avoid getting random outcomes, criticism, or negative feedback from the nation, like what happened concerning the failed experience of the assembly of the anti- corruption law.

Abdulsalam Al-Ansi, a member of the Shura Council insured the importance to wait before making any kind of reformation “we have to limit the discussion and focus on specific points rather than discussing the new reformation in general.”” Al-Ansi stated.
