The former Yemeni president Ali Abullah Saleh has strongly slammed the Yemeni interim government, dubbing it as a lame government.
In an article published in Alyaman Alyawm Newspaper (Yemen Today), he said that the GCC-brokered power transfer deal had not been completely implemented, stressing that the General People Congress committees to all articles of the deal.
Saleh emphasized that the interim government presided by Mohammad Salem Basindwa is incompetent and could not fulfill its promises, indicating that it doubled the suffers of Yemenis.
He reitrated that he will stay as the leader of the General People Congress, despite efforts exerted to take him away.
Saleh's attacks against the government came amid attempts of states that adopted the GCC deal to persuade him to leave the political life.
Well-informed sources affirmed that the UN Envoy Jamal Benomar who currently visits Yemen seeks to put pressures on Saleh to resign from the GCC.
Meanwhile, fears are raised among population of Yemen that violence acts may break out in Eid Al-Adha, a Muslim religious holiday, particularly as Yemeni analysts anticipated that violence acts will break out. Abaad Research and Study Centre (Abaad) had warned that clashes will erupt between the Republican Guard led by the elderly son of the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and the First Armored Division commanded by the defected Ali Mohsin Saleh.
