Hadi Meets with Southern Governors In Aden

President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi led a meeting of governors in the southern city of Aden on Sunday as he resumed some of his duties after escaping house arrest in the capital Sana’a on Saturday Feb, 21st, 2015.

On Sunday he received the governors of various southern Yemeni provinces, Aden governor Abdulaziz bin Habtoor said. “The president will keep up his political efforts to lead from Aden,” Bin Habtoor told reporters after the meeting, which was also attended by army and security chiefs.

“His priority is to normalize the security situation in Aden in order to receive foreign delegates who have requested appointments to meet him,” he said.

President called Saturday for the national commission overseeing the drafting of a new constitution to again convene, saying it should meet in Aden or Taiz province until Sana’a “returns as a safe capital for all Yemenis”.
