ADEN, Yemen- Yemen's internationally-backed President, Abdu-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, sacked on Monday, Prime Minister, Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr, over sharp economic crisis and currency depreciation.
According to the statement, "President Hadi issued the dismissal decision, following the carelessness and failure that accompanied bin Daghr's government, particularly in the economic field." Hadi appointed Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed, as the new Prime Minister, referring former PM bin Daghr for investigation, over his government inefficiency, concerning the Mahra cyclone and the economic collapse.
"The government failed in easing the suffering of the Yemeni people, resolving their problems and meeting their demands, given its inability to take real measures to stop the deterioration of the country's economy."
The new PM previously worked as Minister of Public Roads and Highways, in bin Daghr's cabinet and succeeded in many rebuilding projects, the observers said.
Earlier this month, the pro-secession Southern Transitional Council, blamed the Yemeni government for rampant corruption, calling for a public uprising in the port city of Aden and other neighbouring main cities.
In response, the Yemeni government and its Interior Ministry, beefed up security measures around government institutions in Aden, and vowed to protect the city from sabotage elements. The southern port city of Aden, where Yemen's government is temporarily based, has been suffering from frequent power outages and lack of basic services, including water, leading to a public anger against the local authorities.
