Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi named a new energy minister on Monday as part of a clutch of cabinet appointments, the state news agency SABA reported.
Mohammed Abdullah al-Anani’s appointment comes as Hadi’s internationally recognized government, which broadly controls most of southern Yemen, works to revive oil production and exports, devastated by years of civil war.
The Yemeni president also appointed Naguib al-Aoug as minister of planning and international cooperation, as well as a new justice minister, SABA reported.
The ministers will join the cabinet of Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed, whom Hadi appointed on Oct. 15.
