Information source at the General People's Congress (GPC) commented Saturday on statements of both Mohammed Qahtan , a leading member of Islah Party and Yahya Abu Isbaa , assistant secretary general of the Yemen Socialist Party (YSP) paradoxes on the formation of the Supreme Commission for Elections and Referendum (SCER) . He said," It is regrettable that the aim of Qaahtan and Abu Isbaa and their likes in the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) is the hampering of elections and to hinder all procedures related to preparation for holding them in their date.
He said such behaviour by members in the JMP represents an act of sabotage against the homeland and democracy. The source said they should have joined the democratic march and to recognise its results. He said the people realise the truth about those and their goals behind corrupting the political life through this fabricated tension.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
