The Parliament of the Republic of Yemen appealed to the Inter-Parliamentary Union, all parliaments in fraternal and friendly countries, the United Nations with all its institutions, bodies and organizations and the special UN envoy to Yemen not to recognize the parliamentary Sayun session because it infringed the constitution and laws of the Yemeni Republic.
Furthermore, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Hussein al-Azzi said that the people are the source of legitimacy, and recognizes only the steadfast parliaments who stood by their homeland, their people and the representatives who were elected yesterday.
“We the people are the source of legitimacy and as a Yemeni, I only recognize the steadfast Parliaments with their homeland and their people, this includes the new MPs who were elected today,” he said in reference to the vacant parliamentary seat elections held Saturday in 24 constituencies.
He added: “Whoever brings them (ambassadors) and describes them as sheep who support the siege against the Yemeni people and the occupation of the land, the ones who applaud for murderers and rapist of children and women, they are mercenaries in front of the people and not a single person will recognize them.”
“There are two legal cases to remove MPs from the membership of the House of Representatives, the first is dropping the membership that calls for certain actions by the Council, and the second is the fall of the membership automatically as soon as the availability of reason, such as alignment with the capitals attacking Yemen.
The deputy foreign minister added that the fools dropped their membership and the right of Parliament to prepare again for a supplementary election.
He added: “What the fools did yesterday is that they implicitly recognized the illegality of Hadi, and gave us the recognition of the legitimacy of the parliament and dropped their membership automatically and gave their constituencies the right to elect the alternative, and then they returned to the hotel and this is the logic of the Constitution and the rules of procedure of the House of Representatives.”
