In an unprecedented trend of the Arab Presidents and leaders and the whole world, the Tunisian President al-Moncef al-Marzouki, the liberal intellect and human rights activist, who came to power from prison and exile, has suspended signing documents, agreements and issuing decrees, because he thinks that his authorities had been challenged. He justifies his position for not being consulted by the government in decisions which he considers to be crucial, following the extradition of the former Libyan Prime Minister al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, without his knowledge, and carrying out the extradition decision without his signature as a president, considering the decision to be unconstitutional.
Will President Hadi and PM Basandwah suspend their activities, after President Hadi said that he cannot undertake his powers as president from the presidential premises, amid the continuous firing at his house. Everyone knows that President Hadi and the Reconciliation Government "RG" are suffering a state of paralysis, due to the military siege of Saleh, his sons and the remains of his senior aides. The siege is accompanied by practices that prevented President Hadi from carrying out his duties as president, from the premises which lies under siege of three brigades of the Republican Guards.
The RG also suffers paralysis that is apparent to all, because of the obstruction to its decisions as a result of the practices of the ministers who are loyal to former President Saleh, who lobbies from his house in collaboration with his son Ahmed, commander of the Republican Guard and his nephew Yahia, Chief of staff of the central security forces as well as the other members of his family and the other civilian and military men linked to them.
The paralysis suffered by the RG through those who obstruct her reformatory security, economic and political plans is not a secret. President Hadi and PM Basandwah speak about that and the ambassadors of the ten countries sponsoring the GCC initiative know it as well.
It is also known by UN envoy Jamal Bin Omer and despite the talk about this issue, the RG and its President found no firm decisions from the ten sponsoring countries, towards the obstructions to the initiative, the settlement and the Security Council resolutions. There are also no clear measures against those who hinder the government security economic and political programs, by considering them as insurgents against the legal decisions of President Hadi.
All the above mentioned is enough to make President Hadi and PM Basandwah suspend their work and stop signing any agreements, receive gusts, ambassadors, to preside over any presidential or governmental meetings or to send any congratulation cables, in protest and as a civilized pressure step so as to make the sponsors take clear measures against those who stand in the face of the settlement and the RG.
Regarding the attitude of Dr. Yasin Noman, it was clear because of what could be called statement 1of the Socialist party, that came as a protest against the marginalization of the party and its leadership, especially that Dr. Yasin is now occupying the post of an Advisor, together with Dr. Abdulkarim al-Iriani, Abdulwahab al-Anisi and Abdullah Ahmed Ghanem.
The Socialist party's statement addressed issues that had been awaited for a long time by the people and they were almost despaired of the methods of dealing with the military and civilian appointments, which are considered to be selective ones and are recycling the same people and individuals.
They happened within the same corrupt administrative system, without curing the homeland wounds resulting from the dismissal, marginalization and political revenge that was practiced by the former family system against those who opposed their policy. They were exposed to oppression and exemplary punishment because of this. On the foremost of these are those dismissed from their jobs because of the 1994 war, but they didn't abandon resistance despite the bitterness. They also include the ones who were dismissed because of joining the revolution.
The socialist party according to its statement is clinging to their options of peaceful struggle for achieving the goals of the youth revolution, work firmly for avoiding the country the risks of sliding into chaos, knowing that this is the only way that provides the appropriate terms to resolve the southern issue and bring the necessary balance to the national political life. The Socialist party stressed that the current political partnership starts from the compliance with a clear strategy to address the issues in addition to the compliance of all to live up to their commitments towards the existing political process.
All this is considered to be a good justification to Dr. Noman to suspend his duties by abstaining to attend the meetings of JMP as well as suspending his new post as an advisor to the President.
