"The new government will work in full compliance with the law and the constitution of Yemen. My ministry will do its best to create a truly just society," Akabat said.
Since 2014, Yemen has been ravaged by the conflict between the forces loyal to the President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and Shiite Houthi rebels and other supporters of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The ongoing violence in Yemen has already resulted in a large-scale humanitarian crisis. According to UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen Jamie McGoldrick, over 13 million Yemenis are in need of immediate assistance in the country.
