The Parliament approved the inclusion of a draft law on transitional justice and national reconciliation on its agenda.

Parliament’s move made in its Sunday session after listening to a letter from President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi on finalizing the constitutional measures to pass the draft law.

Hadi urged the parliament to discuss and approve the draft law and to submit it to him to be issued according to the Gulf initiative.

He pinned hopes that the law would pave the way for a national reconciliation, saying that it would put an end to the political conflicts’ repercussions and establish new relations of tolerance and accord among all powers in the Yemeni community.
