Yemen: Hadi appoints new oil, interior ministers

Yemen’s President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has taken the first step towards a long-awaited cabinet shuffle, installing new interior and oil ministers. On 7 March, a presidential decree appointed Major General Abdo Hussein Al-Tareb as interior minister, replacing Abdel-Qader Qahtan. At the Ministry of Oil and Minerals, the new minister is Khaled Mahfouz Bahah, who fills the post vacated by the January resignation of Ahmed Abdullah Dares. Bahah was recalled from Canada, where he had been ambassador since 2008. He is a former oil minister (2006-08) of Hadhrami origin; holding a Masters of Commerce from the University of Pune in India, he has private sector experience and is known for pushing Yemenisation of the oil industry.
