Minister describes activists demanding final return of government to Yemen with al-Houthi "e-flies"

A minister in the legitimate government described the activists who are demanding a final return of the government into Yemen as the "Houthi e-flies".

Two days ago, activists announced the launch of an e-campaign on the Websites under the hashtag "Leave the hotels " asking the legitimate authority for a final return to their business from within Yemen.

In a tweet on his social networking site  "twitter ", local administration Minister Abdul Raqeeb Fatah expressed dismay at the government's constant demand to leave the hotels of Arab capitals and return home and said Fatah  "The government is exercising its functions from the interim capital of Aden, and the Council of Ministers holds Periodic meetings and produces data published by all means. Al-Houthi flies and a number of others who help and support them insist that they are abroad and describe them as a “hotel government “.

Fatah attacked activists, most of whom were forced to flee the country because of the government's inability to normalize conditions in the liberated areas by saying, "Oddly enough, 90% of those describing the government with that are abroad."

Despite the recent return of Prime Minister Maeen Abdul Malik to the interim capital of Aden and his stay most of the time, President Hadi, his deputy, his advisors and most members of the government remain outside the country, moving in the capitals of a number of countries in the region.

Many ministers are reluctant to return to Aden under several excuses, most notably their inability to carry out their jobs from there and the lack of offices and housing for them and their families.

Under the pretext of residency outside the country, ministers and over 400 secretaries and advisers are paid in dollar terms, with ministers each month ranging from ($8,000 to $12,000), while agents and advisors receive monthly salaries of $5,000 per month without performing any work.

Yemen is the world's largest humanitarian crisis and the local currency has lost more than 50 percent of its value in the last two years, while the government continues with absurd expenses, random appointments and waste of resources, most notably the government's inability to resume export of oil and gas and to operate ports and ports Air and sea.

Teachers and soldiers in the areas of control of the legitimate government of Yemen receive salaries in local currency (50 to 80,000 riyals), equivalent to ($100-$150) per month, while during the two past years government officials in the areas of control of the Houthis remain without pay.
