After hiding the decisions to appoint the relatives of the officials.. A broad demand for the Yemeni government to publish the Official Gazette

Activists and media students asked the Yemeni government to publish and make available The Official Gazette, which includes decisions on appointments to senior positions of the state.

More than 500 journalists, lawyers, legal and civil activists have signed a popular initiative called "Journalists and lawyers against corruption in the public service", a letter requesting the Ministry of Legal Affairs to publish and make available The Official Gazette from 2015 to date under the Official Gazette Act 1992.

The signatories to the letter from the popular initiative emphasized the need to publish it in the Official Gazette on laws and decisions on the decisions of the President of the Republic, the decisions of the Republic, the decisions of the President of the Supreme Council of the judiciary, the decisions of the President of the Council of Ministers, as well as the ministerial decisions Organizational, data and declarations: all other citizens must be informed.

Nabil Alasidi, a specialist in corruption cases, said the initiative was aimed at dropping all recruitment notices in the public service, and in particular in the diplomatic service, which is contrary to all laws, resolutions or regulations that have been published.

The diplomat, Mustafa al-Jabezi, said the law on access to information for the year 2012 provides for the importance of disclosing such decisions and the right of public opinion to know the information based on the rule of enhancing transparency.

The popular initiative also demanded the provision of an electronic version of the Official Gazette, like other Arab states, for a maximum of one month.

The increasing number of appointments of ministers and officials in many government and diplomatic posts has aroused widespread outrage among the public, and the Yemeni authorities have recently issued such decisions in an unannounced manner so as not to be criticized by activists and media outlets.
