The Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) and the General People's Congress (GPC) continue to exchange accusations about the derailment of the Transitional Justice Law. The JMP accuse the GPC's minister of stalling the process; however, the latter say they side with a decree which claims that the JMP are the culprits for foiling the implementation of the transitional law.
Abdulmalik Al-Fuhaidi, the Editor-in-Chief of Conference Net, mouthpiece of the GPC, said that his party supports the implementation of the Transitional Justice Law. He accused the JMP of attempting to disrupt the decree due to internal disagreements.
The Minister of Social Affairs, Dr. Mohammed Al-Mekhlafi, said in a statement that some of the GPC's ministers endeavor to derail the law.
Although Al-Fuhaidi said the primary reason for the deadlock were the ongoing disagreements among the JMP, Abdullah Saberi, a leading figure in the Popular Groups party which is affiliated with the JMP, said some parties raise comments and proposals about the law such as expanding its period; such a comment was appreciated and endorsed by all parties.
Due to disagreements about this law, it was referred to the president of the republic and the prime minister, according to Al-Makhlafi's press statements early this month.
Moneer Al-Saqqaf, director of the Minister of Legal Affairs’ office, said that the law of transitional justice was referred to President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi and the prime minister to discuss it and mandate it because ministers of the General People’s Congress (GPC) in the reconciliation government have refused to approve it.
He pointed out that the Gulf Initiative stipulated that if there is disagreement regarding any law, it is being referred to President Hadi and the cabinet.
