Almotamar.net - Leaders in the National Democratic Alliance Parties (NDAP) in Yemen have stressed the necessity of protecting the democracy and holding the elections on time as they are considered as right of the people and not for the parties.
Those leaders have also warned of any backing off from the parliamentary elections, considering any postponement of the elections is considered as violation of the constitutional legitimacy and would push Yemen into a constitutional vacuum.
The NDAP have also called, in interviews published in the Yemeni Al-Mithaq newspaper, on the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) to take part in the preparation for holding the upcoming parliamentary elections on time.
The Assistant Secretary General of the September Party Abdullah Abu Ghanim has warned from any retreat from the parliamentary elections and backing down from the democratic approach. He said the parties of the NDAP have taken a wise decision by announcing to go ahead towards the parliamentary elections and holding them on time.
He pointed out that by taking this decision, the parties of the NDA have closed the opportunity for the JMP that refuse the elections and work for postponing them and procrastinating in the dialogue with the aim of reaching into a constitutional vacuum. Abu Ghanim emphasized the imp [ordnance of holding the elections in their date as they are a right to the people rather than to any party in the arena to postpone them or back down from them whatever the excuses were, calling the attention to the danger of the dubious movements by the parties of the JMP for exploding the situations within a frame of a scenario prepared outside the homeland and targeting the people and their democratic experience.
Fr his part, the Secretary General of the Democratic Union for People’s Forces Saed al-Sharaabi put emphasis on the responsible dealing with the remaining time for the date of upcoming electoral right. He said, “The JMP escape from the elections is attributed to its realization that those parties would come out with empty-handed after it had lost its popularity by its support to the terrorists and saboteurs, a matter contradicting the will of the people. He advised the parties of the JMP to participate I the process of preparation for the upcoming parliamentary elections on time.
Al-Sharaabi called on members of the JMP to stand by democracy and no to allow personal whims to assassinate the will of the people and usurp their free will.
Dr Saleh Mohammed al-Azibi , Head of the Political Office at the Liberation Front Party has affirmed that the elections are right of the people and must not be squandered or postpone them and the parties must respect the will of the people and move towards consolidating the democratic experience however disappointing the results were for this party or that.
He said the people accepted reluctantly the extension for the parliament and any other extension would make the parliament lose its legitimacy.
He called on the parties and civil organisations to defend the right of the people and not to allow any party to squander this right, describing the any retreat from the elections as assassination of democracy, confiscation of the people right and entering the country into a dark tunnel.
The leading member in the Arab Baath Socialist Party Abdulrahman Mahyoub affirmed that backing down from the parliamentary elections or postponing them is considered as violation of the constitutional legitimacy that would lead Yemen to a constitutional vacuum and deep abyss of endless conflicts. In a statement to Al-Mithaq newspaper Mahyoub indicated that the parties of the JMP demanded, as they did in the dialogue, different weak justifications and pretexts in an escape from the electoral right. He said if the JMP is ken on the democratic approach, its parties would not have escaped from the elections which are considered the sole path to attaining power. The Baathist leader has emphasized the necessity of holding the elections in the fixed date. He affirmed that it is not the right of the General People’s Congress or parties of the NDAP or other parties to back down from this constitutional right, against the will of the people.
He clarified that refusal if the parties of the JMP of the elections, is a normal product of their early realization of their defeat in the elections as they remained supporting and backing the terrorists and the rebels and enemies of the people.
