Yemeni President Names New Prime Minister


President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi Monday named former oil minister Khalid Bahah as Yemen’s new premier, a presidency source said.

Bahah, 49, was nominated after consultations with advisers “representing various parties”, the source said.

Hadi’s move came after Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak rejected his nomination last week following strong political opposition.
