 The appointment of the leader of the Southern Transitional Council, Raafat Ali Ibrahim Al-Thaqali, as governor of the Socotra archipelago, caused the Islah party, the local branch of the terrorist Brotherhood in Yemen, to go crazy and angry.

Today, Al-Thaqali, along with MP Mabkhout Mubarak bin Madi, took the constitutional oath before the President of the Presidential Leadership Council, Dr. Rashad Muhammad Al-Alimi, on the occasion of their appointment as governors of Socotra and Hadhramaut.

According to the government agency, Saba, Al-Alimi Al-Thaqali and Ibn Madi urged the importance of working in a team spirit to activate state agencies, establish justice and enforce the law, and work with all components to exploit the unique components of the two governorates, distinguished by their history, location, and promising development opportunities.

Al-Thaqali is a prominent social figure in Socotra and was the first to lead the popular uprising against the rule of the Brotherhood led by former governor Ramzi Mahrous, who was forced to flee with his associates after the demonstrators took control of the local authority headquarters and the headquarters of the security and military services that refused to suppress this uprising.

Despite the great local political and popular welcome for this decision, the Brotherhood’s tools were on a date with wailing and wailing after they lost hope permanently from the return of the Brotherhood’s governor, Mahrous, to the capital of the archipelago, from which he was expelled two years ago.

 This was confirmed by the Brotherhood journalist, Mukhtar Al-Rahbi, who said that they were waiting for Mahrous to be returned, but what happened was the opposite, as he was dismissed.

The dismissal of Mahrous is the second slap the Brotherhood has received after the overthrow of the governor of Shabwa, Muhammad Saleh bin Udayo, on the background of his complicity with the Houthi militia and handing over the Bayhan districts to them without any fighting and allowing them to bypass and besiege the Ma’rib governorate with the aim of bringing it down within an international scheme sponsored by Turkey and Qatar.

Al-Thaqali is a member of the National Assembly of the Southern Transitional Council, the President of the Transitional Council in the Socotra Archipelago, and a member of the Dialogue Consultations Committee in the political axis.  

Perhaps this is the reason for the screaming and wailing of the Brotherhood’s tools, which see the Transitional Council as its archenemy after it was able to exclude it militarily and politically, reveal its social reality, and make its arm in Yemen (the Islah Party) a pariah in the various southern governorates.

The most severe cases of Brotherhood anger appeared in a lengthy article by the Brotherhood journalist residing in Turkey, Yassin Al-Tamimi, who attacked Al-Thaqali with the most vile descriptions, recalling the tragedy of the overthrow of Brotherhood governor Ramzi Mahrous.

Al-Tamimi claimed that Raafat Al-Thaqali’s appointment to this position had several dangerous implications, before he turned, as is the custom of the Brotherhood, to accuse the Arab coalition, represented by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, of being behind these appointments that completely remove the Brotherhood from the scene.

The southern media, Adel Abdullah Al-Yafei ridiculed the Brotherhood's anger over the decision to appoint Al-Thaqali as Socotra governor.
