Government support and a strong army

New Era in Yemen
A new era for Yemen led by the Presidential Leadership Council drops Iran’s bets on prolonging the war and works to complete the implementation of the tasks of the transitional period.
This comes as a culmination of the Yemeni-Yemeni consultations in Riyadh under the umbrella of the Gulf Cooperation Council and as a new stage for the country’s transition from war to peace, but this depends on the Houthi militia’s acceptance of the upcoming peace plan.
Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who was elected in 2012 as president of the country, delegated the new leadership council, consisting of a president and 7 other members, with full powers and the powers of the vice president, following the Yemeni constitution and the Gulf initiative and its executive mechanism, one of the three most important international references for legitimacy.

No More Ambitious for Iran in Yemen
The formation of the Presidential Leadership Council drops the ambitions of the Iranian regime, which bet on prolonging the war through its Houthi proxies, who have always rejected any peaceful settlements, trying to find a legitimization for their destructive war.
According to the head of the Happy Yemen Tribes Alliance, Brigadier General Faisal Al-Sha’ari, the announcement of the full-fledged Presidential Council is a correct step and on the right track, as it is a qualitative leap to remove Yemen from the arena of conflict, war, and destruction to the horizon of consensus, peace, harmony, and love.
Al-Sha’ari stressed in media statements that “the Yemeni people have waited for a long time for this moment, eagerly than hot coals, as it is a historic and defining moment in Yemen’s modern history.”
While the military official expressed his wishes for the success of the Presidential Command Council in its future tasks and achieving the aspirations of the people and all the free people of Yemen, he indicated that Yemen had entered a new phase with its men, ambitions, aspirations, and challenges, including the abort of the Iranian project, which bet on turning Yemen into a camp to threaten the neighborhood.
He cautioned that Hadi, after handing over his authority to lead the Presidential Council, will remain an honorary president.
Engaging effective leaders
The formation of the Presidential Command Council, which will handle the negotiations with the Houthi militia, came after President Hadi abdicated his powers in a desire to involve effective leaders in managing the state in this transitional phase, and an affirmation of commitment to Yemen’s unity, sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity, and territorial integrity,” according to the announcement of the Yemeni presidency.
He also stated that he senses the “historical, national and humanitarian responsibility in the current circumstances that the nation is going through in all its lands, and in confronting the humanitarian and political crises that resulted from the wars between our people, and for overcoming the difficulties and obstacles that have been placed in front of our people’s achievement in building a new Yemen, and preserving the social fabric.” Stop the bloodshed, and heal the wounds.”
The declaration constitutes “the essence of the outcomes of the comprehensive national dialogue 2014, as it embodies the goals of the glorious September and October revolutions, in building a civil state that achieves broad partnership and equitable distribution of wealth, protects everyone, achieves comprehensive and lasting peace, preserves the security of all citizens, and the stability of the homeland’s security and territorial integrity, and to complete the tasks of the stage.” transitional and in implementation of the consensus of the Yemeni people.
