The House of Representatives decided to summon the Yemeni government on Sunday to debate a bill to hike the diesel price in the light of the report of the House's committee on diesel price, the official agency Saba reported on Saturday.
The move comes after the national unity government last week put forward a proposal to exempt farmers from taxes in a bid to approve a draft to increase the price of diesel.
Earlier the year, the diesel bill was rejected by Parliament on the grounds any hikes to the diesel price would largely affect the farmers, who account for the biggest segment of the Yemeni society.
Coinciding with the popular uprising last year, oil pipelines including the Marib-Ras Isa pipe, were repeatedly attacked, leading to acute fuel shortages and soaring prices of oil and diesel.
The shortage of diesel has affected the agricultural and industrial sectors by almost 90 percent.
The House also discussed the report of the media, culture and tourism committee on the amendments to the law of access to information proposed by President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi and approved them.
