The technical committee in charge with preparation for a comprehensive national dialogue in Yemen met on Wednesday and discussed key issues which can help pave the way for the success of its job.
The meeting chaired by head of the committee, Abdul Karim Al-Eryani, focused on and agreed to completing the representation of the southern movement, Harak, in the committee’s lists and addressed issues that can be solved through decisions outside the agenda of the dialogue.
Furthermore, the committee dealt with its bylaw and action plan and decided to continue meeting on Thursday.
The technical committee, which has been controversial even by key political forces since its formation in mid-July, met earlier this week and elected its head, deputies and a spokesperson.
The controversy about the committee has been focused on the way it was formed and allegedly unequal representation of all concerned groups and factions.
The decisions by President Hadi two days ago to restructure the armed forces are believed to help the committee accomplish its job successfully amid demands by political forces and the protesters to ensure a quick restructuring of the national forces to pave the way for a productive national dialogue.
The dialogue was planned to be held in early November after had been delayed twice this year.
It will be held under the West-backed power-transfer deal, which was reached in late 2011 after the unrest.
