Hot Political Winter

By Fakhri al-Arashi

Reaching the end of National dialogue in Yemen has brought up a dramatically new scene in the political weather. The country witnessed an unusual cold for the past few decades, but politics has made little warmth for the goal of a smooth end.

The political powers have disagreed on the initials solutions for the southern issue from the narrow angle of self-interest. They have dealt with the case from business theory and direct income for each party, giving no attention to the public who have been to the street calling for fair opportunities and justice.

The current process does not emphasize solutions that develop a clear vision for the state building. The GPC went above and beyond to justify and criticize the mechanism and terms of the document made by all political parties. The parties did not reject the document as it was made by UN General Envoy Jamal Banour who has been working to bring the point of views on the right track to begin a new phase.  

Today, after the interference of the international community in Yemeni affairs, more political parties are trying to spoil the scene through creating multiple social and political problems within the different areas in Yemen.

The new movements that appeared in Hadhramout, the land of oil investments, is a kind of new to the government, and unexpected. The people who have not carried a single piece of weapons in their long life are threatening the oil companies with violence. The companies are not part of the Hadharmi culture by history, and neither is violent struggle. The country is struggling, and calling for the rescuers in a cold atmosphere. Yemen is facing a close end that no one knows yet whatit will look like. 

It may look like a cold winter that causes everyone suffering.
