What will be your first demand for something to be changed or fixed once Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi takes over in office?
The first thing that we want to see accomplished is for the protesting youth to smoothly depart from squares across the country once president Hadi swears in to office. The evacuation of the squares is necessary, for the continuation of protests and demonstrations suggests that the youth don’t totally trust Hadi to rule over the country – even after the euphoria expressed on Election Day.
Therefore, such a contradiction must be resolved. We want the ‘tents and camps’ technique to be retired for some time so as to allow the new president distinguish himself. Moreover, we want President Hadi to hold the law in esteem, and not give corrupt individuals and criminals a chance to contravene the rules.
We are in need of law enforcement, justice, and equity. We need radical resolutions or an alleviation of the present security situation and economic imbalance. We do not anticipate miracles. Rather, we await tangible remedies for the manifold aspects of life.
Adel Ahmed, 31
The first thing that must be changed is the type of corruption which took place over in the last 33 years all throughout our government institutions. Hadi must create a new government structure in order to prevent corruption from spreading. All Yemenis must live in a pure community, and they must receive their rights and have their demands met. This will truly provide for our economy in an effective way.
