South Yemen leader Al-Zubaidi accuses Muslim Brotherhood of turmoil

In the first Southern Transitional Council STC meeting based in Aden yesterday, president of the council and former Aden governor Aidarous Al-Zubaidi accused the Islah party – which is aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood – of spreading turmoil in Yemen.

Al-Zubaidi claimed that the Islah party has formed an alliance with Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi to influence policies in South Yemen. President Zubaidi added that the Muslim Brotherhood does not have any support in the south of Yemen.

The transitional political council in southern Yemen is a United Arab Emirates supported political infrastructure that it is contested by Hadi.

A transitional council rally is planned for Friday, to show support for a southern secession from central and northern Yemen. Prime Minister Ahmed Abu Dager warned that any rally will directly challenge the recognised government of Yemen and ultimately support the cause of the Houthi armed group.
