SRC hands over authority to SPC

SANA’A (Saba) – The Supreme Revolutionary Committee (SRC) on Monday handed over the authority to the Supreme Political Council (SPC), whose members were sworn in on Sunday before the Parliament.

During the ceremonies taken place in the presidential palace in Sana’a,
SRC president Mohammed al-Houthi handed over the Yemen’s flag to SPC president Salah al-Sammad.

At the ceremony, al-Sammad delivered a speech stressing the importance of the event, which, he described as a “historic shift and a positive step in rebuilding Yemen and confronting the Saudi aggression.”

He stressed that the country’s enemies were seeking not to let Yemenis arrange their political and economic situation, adding the agreement between Ansarallah and the General People Congress (GPC) to establish the SPC would stop the aggression’s attempts to keep the country sieged and paralyzed.

The agreement was signed on July 28th to set up the SPC, which is designated to run the country in all fields.

The SPC was formed on August 6th and held its first meeting in the Capital, when they elected Saleh al-Sammad as a SPC President and Kassem Labuza as a Vice President.

Al-Sammad saluted the role played by the SRC president Mohammed al-Houthi and the committee members in running the country, confronting the aggression, preserve the national gains and prevented the State’s failure.

The ceremonies were attended by Parliament Speaker Yahya al-Raei, the Supreme Judicial Council Abdul-Malik al-Aghbari, Acting Prime Minister Talal Aqlan and a number of ministers, acting ministers and Parliament and Shura Council members, military and security leaders, and the diplomatic corps members.
