The General People’s Congress (GPC) political party and its allies have on Tuesday renewed their principled position rejecting the aggression of the coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE against Yemen.
In a statement, the GPC and its allies stressed that they “have nothing to do with the statement issued by the so-called political parties and organisations in Ma’rib province, neither from near nor from afar.”
They added that what was included in the statement issued by the mercenaries is “only evidence of the extent of the betrayal committed by those who issued it against the people and the country.
“The mercenaries who are crying over Ma’rib today are the ones who sold the homeland and helped the occupier to enter Ma’rib and other cities and Yemeni lands, and to plunder its wealth,” the statement read.
In their statement, the GPC and its allies congratulated the army, the Popular Committees and allied tribesmen for the victories on various fronts, the foremost of which is the Ma’rib front.
The General People’s Congress is a nationalist and Pan-Arab political party that used to be the ruling party of North Yemen, and of the Republic of Yemen after the 1990 unification.
After the September 21 Revolution of 2014, the GPC split into opposing factions, with a large part supporting the National Salvation Government. Other members of the Congress, led by Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, fled to Saudi Arabia and currently support the invasion.
