Yemeni Republican Federal Party

Founding Statement of the Yemeni Federal Republican Party

Dear Children of the great Yemeni people,

Yemenis inside and outside of the country

Yemen is facing a serious historical turning point that threatens its national identity, republic and unity. It is also facing an  ethnic,  racial  Hashemite  discrimination  in  positions,  employment  hierarchy  of  jobs  and  even  in  sharing  the  national  wealth  of the northern  part  of  our  beloved country in violation of all international conventions.  Yemen is facing local and regional conspiracy that seeks to divide its geography, islands, waterways, and resources to be occupied through regional, partisan militias in the south. And the consequences of the hawkish coup of September 21, 2014 on the outputs of the National Dialogue and its national project for the federal state, which was unanimously agreed upon by the majority of political and national forces.

In light of the complete inability of the rival political forces that have abandoned Yemen  to external  forces  while  the Arab  coalition  has  targeted the institutions of the country and its sovereignty, and the threat of the political Islamism which made Yemen an exile for a regional liquidation that led to the worst tragic humanitarian and environmental disaster that the world has never seen in a country that has the richest components of renaissance in the south of the Arabian peninsula.

In this day of the anniversary of the Revolution of September 26th which is the day of the birth of the glorious Republic, and with a sense of national and historical responsibility, and in defense of the right of the Yemeni people who are still patient while their lives, dignity, security and land have been confiscated, and to strengthen the political role in supporting  the restoration of the state and ending the coup, which calls on the legitimate authority to return to Yemen in order to rebuild the state institutions and extend its powers over the entire Yemen and to lift the country from  the  deteriorating  economic,  security  and  social  conditions,  the  Founding  Assembly announces the establishment of the (YEMENI FEDERAL REPUBLICAN PARTY) along with national elite figures representing all the components of Yemeni society inside and outside and from all regions and provinces in Yemen. The Yemeni Federal Republic Party (YFRP) is an umbrella organization for all Yemenis that has been established as an urgent call to participate in saving and building our country.
