The Mokha Center for Strategic Studies organized a Twitter space titled “The Houthi Group’s Perspective on Political Partnerships.” This event garnered the participation of distinguished intellectuals and politicians, fostering an arena for nuanced discussions.

The center hosted prominent figures, including Dr. Adel Al-Shuja’, a member of the General Committee of the General People’s Congress, Nasr Al-Din Amer, a media representative from the Houthi group, and Saif Al-Muthanna, the liaison officer at the Washington Center for Studies. Moderating the discourse was Bashir Al-Harthy, a media professional.

A diverse assembly participated in the event, encompassing personalities spanning various political affiliations, parties, and research analysts. The speakers engaged in thorough discussions revolving around the Houthi group’s conception of political engagement and national partnership. The dialogue encompassed the intricacies of their relationships with other political entities and societal constituents, situated within the context of ongoing international and regional diplomatic endeavors to reach a political settlement and terminate the Yemeni conflict.

Delving into the stages of the Houthi group’s emergence, the prevailing ideology shaping their stance, their defining characteristics, their stance towards the national endeavor, their political aspirations, and their vision for political collaboration were expounded. An examination of the “alliance” formed between the Houthi group and the General People’s Congress, specifically the wing affiliated with Ali Abdullah Saleh, since 2016, was also a focal point of the discourse.

The symposium extended its purview to encompass the underlying foundations of the partnership between the Houthi group and the General People’s Congress Party, specifically Ali Abdullah Saleh’s faction. The trajectory of this partnership, the repercussions that underpinned it, and the outcomes it yielded were scrutinized.

The participants underlined that successive agreements with the Houthi group provided a cloak for their territorial expansion plans within the Republic of Yemen’s boundaries, commencing as early as 2011. Notably, this expansion unfolded from the Saada governorate’s dissociation from the central state, subsequently encompassing Amran and ultimately culminating in the capture of Sana’a.
