A senior government official has stated that calls by political, tribal and youth figures for President Hadi to reconsider his decisions concerning the Contact Committee are completely unacceptable.

“The presidential decree has already been issued and no addition of or removal of names can be made according to the desires of certain people,” said the official.

According to him, the decree was issued following discussions with various political forces in the country which, along with the United Nations, reached accord.

The official said those who weren’t included in the Contact Committee can still participate in the National Dialogue Conference and discuss the different issues to be included, thereby doing their duty towards their country.

The official added that those who have said they’re not represented by the committee are depending on weak evidence, as they are in fact represented by individuals from their parties.
