Extensive preparations resume for the celebration of the thirtieth anniversary since the founding of the General People’s Congress (GPC) and the first anniversary of the martyrdom of Abdul Aziz Abdul Ghani Chairman of the Shura Council and is scheduled to be held next Monday in the capital of Sana’a.
The conference is to be chaired by former president of the republic and president of the GPC Ali Abdullah Saleh and expected to be attended by President of the Republic Abdu Rabo Mansour Hadi.
However some sources expect Hadi will not attend the celebrations due to the sensitivity of the current political situation.
The sources think that President Hadi was elected by all political parties as president of the republic and therefore should not be a president of any political party.
In this context, the Preparatory Committee of the festival held a meeting on Wednesday under the chairmanship of Dr. Ahmed Obaid bin Dughar Assistant Secretary-General of the General People’s Congress and Sheikh Yahya al-Rai Secretary-General of the General People’s Congress and Speaker of the House of Representatives, and in the presence of a number of members of the General Committee and the Secretariat.
The meeting was designated to the discussion of the tasks carried out by the sub-committees so far, the final preparations for a celebration, and the agenda of the ceremony, particularly in regard to honoring the assembly of founders of the General People’s Congress.
The Committee approved the completion of all final preparations for the celebration. The Preparatory Committee approved a list of participants in the festival for celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the founding conference.
The lists included all members who attended the Seventh General Conference of the General People’s Congress.
