STC Rises Against Opponents in Aden, Seeks Rapprochement with Houthis
The Deputy Foreign Minister of the rescue Government in Sana’a, Hussein Al-Ezzi, revealed that the Transitional Council began monitoring the movements of members of the Presidential Council in Aden, noting that the transitional factions are awaiting al-Zubaidi’s orders to arrest members of the Presidential Council and hand them over to Sana’a, in a sign that STC, who aspires to a state in the south, is seeking to conclude an agreement with Sana’a.
The Transitional Council, which calls for the secession of southern Yemen, continued on Saturday, its escalation against its partners in the new alternative authority to “legitimacy” in Aden, in a move that indicates the council’s efforts to end its participation in the “presidential council”, especially with his search for a rapprochement with Sana’a authorities outside the framework of the pro-coalition authority.
The transitional escalation came at a time when differences within the presidency reached a climax due to efforts to implement the military and security part of the Riyadh Agreement, which provides for the integration of the transitional factions into the ministries of defense and interior, in addition to the transitional requirement for new positions in the government formation, which is being talked about in the corridors of the new authority, this indicates the transitional trend towards disrupting the presidential activity.
In this context, the Presidency of the Council directed to lower the flags in Aden for a period of three days of mourning on the death of Emirates president, the decision is a violation of the authority of the Presidential Council, which has become the largest authority in the city.
The decision to destabilize the media, through which the transitional tried to display its popularity, and use it as a card against the Presidential Council coincided with a new threat issued by his presidency of a certain government, where it demanded real reforms in the economy, an end to the collapse of the currency, and the provision of services, even though the council is part of the government.
