The Yemeni President ‘Abd-Raba’ Al-Mansour Hadi has announced his resignation following the capture his Presidential Palace in the nation’s capital of Sanaa on Monday. Hadi turned in his resignation to the Yemeni Prime Minister Khaled Baha’, with the statement “I do not want to be dragged into a political maze.”

Hadi was sworn into office on February 25th, 2012 – becoming the 2nd President of the Republic of Yemen after the long reign of his predecessor ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Saleh. His presidency was marked with turmoil since his inception in office – his departure leaves the Yemeni Armed Forces without a supreme commander.

The rebel group Houthis agreed to a temporary ceasefire with the Yemeni Armed Forces, following their capture of the Presidential Palace. The group is now in negotiations with the Armed Forces in order to obstruct any form of secession that once brought the young nation into a civil war.
