Yemen President Hadi: new leader, same routine
Published in Bikya Masr on 01 - 05 - 2012

SANA'A: Yemen's newly-elected president, Abdu Rabo Mansour Hadi, has recently issued several decrees appointing new figures in military and civilian positions.
The new president placed new cadres in new positions that have been held for a long time by loyalists to ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh and his family.
Yemeni analysts said that president Hadi's decrees are good because they participate in solving the current unrest in the country, adding these decrees would tackle the previous regime's problems, which depended most the time on figures related to his family al-Ahmer family, or to his tribe Hashid, or to his village, Sanhan.
According to the Yemeni Arabic language newspaper, al-Ahale, the country's new president Hadi almost has begun the same strategy was following Saleh in appointing people loyal to him or from his village.
Al-Ahale newspaper, which belongs to Islah party, accused President Hadi of reiterating the same strategy of the previous regime saying that president Hadi committed the same mistakes of the prior regime by appointing figures that are close to him or his son, Jalal Hadi, whom, started lately in helping his father by choosing figures close to him or loyal to him.
The newspaper mentioned that Jalal Hadi, who is now the deputy of Expatriates Minister, began following the same role was followed by ex-president Saleh's son, Ahmed Ali, the head of the Republican Guards, who used to appoint personnel know by him or related to him.
Jalal Hadi starting playing the same role of the son the president who can effectively suggest the close circle of him to be held new positions whether military, security, or civilian posts.
The son of President Hadi was intervening in the country affairs.
Jalal recently ordered the presidential office to design a new website for his father as an official website; and until this moment, that same team of engineers are still working on it since the beginning of this year, taking pay for no real substantive work.
He also stopped the official website of the country's president, which was run by Saba news agency for years.
Al-Ahale newspaper accused President Hadi of repeating the same mistakes and the strategy of the previous regime, which hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people across the country revolted against to change. And not just getting rid of one dictator and inviting another in.
