Ali Nasir Muhammad Husani
: علي ناصر محمد الحسني
) (born 31 December 1940)
is the former leader
of South Yemen
serving as General Secretary
of the Yemeni Socialist Party
between 1980 and 1986. He was twice president of South Yemen
and once the Prime Minister. He served as the Prime Minister from 2 August 1971 until 14 February 1985
and as Chairman of the Presidential Council from 26 June 1978 - 27 December 1978. In April 1980, South Yemeni president Abdul Fattah Ismail
resigned and moved to Moscow. His successor was Ali Nasir Muhammad who took a less interventionist stance toward both North Yemen
and neighbouring Oman
. On January 13, 1986, a violent struggle began in Aden
between Ali Nasir's supporters and supporters of the returned Ismail. (See South Yemen Civil War
) Fighting lasted for more than a month and resulted in thousands of casualties, Ali Nasir's ouster, and Ismail's death. Muhammad's term had lasted from 21 April 1980 to 24 January 1986. Some 60,000 people, including the deposed Ali Nasir, fled to North Yemen. He was succeeded by Haidar Abu Bakr al-Attas
In 1978, Ali Nasir Muhammad overthrew and executed Rubai Ali, after a short battle which took place in Almodowar Palace, located in At-Tawahi, Aden, which Rubai Ali used as a fortification.
The former president became an opposition figure in the 2011 Yemeni uprising
, being named to a 17-member transitional council intended by some anti-government factions to govern Yemen
during a prospective transition from the authoritarian regime led by President Ali Abdullah Saleh
to a plural democracy. This council was opposed by the Joint Meeting Parties
, the main opposition coalition, which also supported Saleh's removal from power and a transition to democracy.
In February 2015, there were media reports that Muhammad was being considered as a prospective interim leader of a "presidential council" after the collapse of the government
