"Basurra", suspends his membership in the presidency of the House of Representatives due to the government's failure to comply with the recommendations of the Council


Yemen's deputy speaker of parliament, Mohsen Basurra, announced Wednesday the suspension of his membership in the presidency of the council.

In his letter of comment to Council President Sultan al-Barakani, Basurra attributed this decision to the government failure, represented by its Prime Minister,  to comply to the recommendations of the Council when approving the general budget of the state for 2019 in Sieyun on April 16, 2019.

In his letter, a copy of which was received by Al-Masdar online, Basurra explained that the comment came because the government did not implement the urgent recommendations to solve the problem of electricity on the Coast of Hadramout, which is to provide a gas power plant with a capacity of 100 MW and provide diesel and diesel for electricity at the expense of the government and the formation of a government committee to go down to Hadramout valley to assess the security situation and provide security requirements for Hadramout valley.

He added: "Given the passage of more than 3 months and none of these recommendations have been fulfilled or the promises made by the Prime Minister himself, I am not honored to continue to exercise my duties in the presidency and the membership of the Council and suspend my membership until the government fulfills its obligations in accordance with the recommendations of the Council and not with patchwork solutions.

He continued: "This position is not bias to Hadramout because it is my province, but through my post I have followed many of the issues of citizens for a number of provinces, segments and categories with the ministries concerned and solved some of them, and some of them are still in follow-up "

On Wednesday, Basurra appealed to the prime minister to solve the Hadramout electricity problem.

"There must be a real partnership between the Authority of Hadramout and the oil company Petromasila, whose terms are clearly sponsored by the prime minister's office to solve electricity problems," he said in his appeal, a copy of which was received by Al-Masdar online.

The appeal comes after angry protesters blocked major roads in Mukalla, the capital of Hadramout province, to protest the deterioration of electricity.

Public and official reactions to Hadramout have escalated as electricity service has deteriorated dramatically.

Angry protesters yesterday blocked a number of main streets in Mukalla, causing a traffic jam in the city.

A few days ago, popular protests were halted after the arrival of the Diesel ship under government directives, but the deterioration in the electricity service was renewed.
