Sana'a, NewsYemen, exclusive:

In the vicinity of the 33rd National Day of the Republic of Yemen (the anniversary of the re-establishment of Yemeni unity) on May 22, 1990, the features and images of the division and separation led by the Houthi militia - the Iranian arm in Yemen - in the north, are evident on more than one level, as a practical reality and not media discourse.

Since its coup against state institutions in September 2014, the Houthi militia has been systematically excluding and deporting state employees from the southern and eastern governorates residing in the city of Sana'a, including members of the House of Representatives, members of the Council of Ministers, and heads of government institutions and agencies.

The former Minister of Tourism in Sana'a, Nasser Baqqouz, confirmed the separatism of the Houthi militia and its practice of separatism on the ground, saying, "The south in Sana'a is an office run by a group from Saada, and they do not trust any southerners and no southerners are allowed among them."

Southern politician Nasser Baqzqouz believes that "the dialogue of the Transitional Council is working to unite people from Aden to Al-Mahra, while the Houthis have been negotiating themselves for eight years, from Maran to Razih."

Partial institutions with racist motives

During the year 2022, (NewsYemen) monitored the establishment of the Houthi militia of illegal bodies and institutions, the exclusion of qualified cadres and the replacement of qualified cadres by elements loyal to them, with abhorrent racist motives.

In the Shura Council, the Houthi militia added 40 members during the year 2022 AD, and also added 6 virtual ministers to the strength of the government run by the group, and created what it called the Electric Industries and Renewable Energy Corporation, and appointed the leader in its ranks, Abdul Ghani Al-Madani, as head of this institution. It also appointed Abdel-Fattah Al-Madani, as head of the Civil Defense Authority, with the virtual rank of major general.

In the judicial field, during the year 2022, the Houthi militia added 9 virtual judges to the membership of the Supreme Court, while Dr. Rashad Al-Rasas was excluded from the position of Secretary-General of the Parliament, and appointed Abdullah Yahya Abdullah Ahmed Al-Qasimi as his replacement.

During the year 2022, the Houthi militia issued a partial decision to work according to the Hijri calendar, and another to adopt what it called the Code of Professional Conduct, in addition to a package of amendments to a number of laws, and fundamental changes to the academic curriculum, and judges and lawyers considered that these Houthi measures affect national unity and tamper state, and splitting its administrative structures.

Tariffs enshrine separation realistically

The Houthi militia decided to re-collection of customs duties on cars, public vehicles, goods and merchandise coming from the southern and eastern governorates without a legal basis. Lawyers considered this Houthi action (a dangerous precedent and a flagrant violation of the constitution of the Yemeni unity state) and a practical dedication to the concept of separation on the ground.

At the core of the tasks of state institutions, the Houthi militia has created illegal structures outside the systems, regulations and administrative structures of state institutions, by appointing whom it calls supervisors (political, economic, cultural, social), which led to the removal of the powers and competencies of officials of state institutions and the fragmentation and fragmentation of their administrative systems and structural structures.

The Houthi militia intends to perpetuate dynastic separatism based on monopolizing jobs and appointments in the family and relatives of the leader of the Houthi militia, in addition to perpetuating regional separatism by granting the people of Saada the lion's share of positions in state military and civil institutions.

Images of Houthi secession reached its climax with legal amendments affecting the essence of laws related to equality between citizens, when it introduced alleged amendments to the Zakat Law that give the group a character of sanctity and confirm its contents of its racist, dynasty and supremacist tendencies and violate the principle of equality and citizenship in the Constitution of the Republic of Yemen.
