The federalization of Yemen
or the Federal Republic of Yemen
was the final outcome of the National Dialogue Conference
, the Dialogue members also agreed that Yemen
would be transformed into a 6-region federal system.
The regions would be Azal in the North, and Saba
in the Center, and Tihama
in the West, and Aden and Jand in the South, and Hadramawt
in the East. Sana’a will have a special status and not be part of any region. Aden
, the former southern capital, would also have a special status but will be part of Aden region. Azal, Saba, Janad and Tihama would be northern provinces where Aden and Hadramawt would be southern.
The proposal also includes changing the title of "Governorate" to "state".
