Deposed Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh’s political party has formally warned that they will end their partnership with the Houthi militias after they released a statement on Wednesday.
In their statement, the General People’s Congress party in Sanaa accused their Houthi partners of persecuting and insulting their leaders and members.
The letter, authored by the party's Secretary-General Aref al-Zouka, was sent to the Houthi political council and described that they are being de facto ruled by their coup detat partners.
Al-Zouka added that journalists and politicians loyal to them are being harassed by Houthi militiamen describing the actions as “terrorist acts” and “irresponsible”.
The letter further added that there is a clear indication of a lack of desire from the Houthi’s to continue the partnership.
The Secretary-General enclosed a list of 44 members of the Houthi militia and its journalists who were attacking Saleh and the leaders of his party. He stressed that these elements can not dare to write and publish without the approval of their supreme leadership.
Members of the deposed party expressed their rejection of a sham or decorative partnership with the Houthis, in their first official threat to withdraw from the alliance since conflict between the two allies erupted with armed clashes in central Sanaa in August.
Sources in the General People’s Congress, said that there is strong pressure on Saleh from party leaders to break the alliance with the Houthis after the increasing attacks and violations.
