Tawakkol Karman tweets about the Presidential Leadership Council in Yemen and its relationship with its president, Rashad Al-Alimi

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Yemeni activist, who won the Nobel Peace Prize, commented on the announcement of Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi for the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council and the transfer of its full powers to it.

This came in a tweet by the Yemeni activist on her official Twitter page, where she said: “Yemen… what exactly happened in Riyadh is that they locked each of the consultants in a room for several hours, then ordered them to sign Hadi’s statement, who was also locked up in a room, and God knows.” What happened to him, slander, threat or material temptation! Between Rashad Al-Alimi and I have great mutual respect, I have no problem with him, but it is not personal.”

According to the statement issued by Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, the Presidential Leadership Council is headed by Rashad Muhammad Al-Alimi, and the membership of seven members are:

(1) Sultan Ali Al-Arada.

(2) Tariq Muhammad Salih.

(3) Abd al-Rahman Abu Zara’a.

(4) Abdullah Al-Alimi Bawazeer.

(5) Othman Hussein Megally.

(6) Aidarous Qassem Al-Zubaidi.

(7) Faraj Salmin Al-Bahsani.

The Saudi Crown Prince, Prince Muhammad bin Salman, had received the Chairman of the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council and members of the Council, and expressed the Kingdom’s support for the Council and its aspiration that its establishment would contribute to the beginning of a new page in Yemen, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.
