Mohammed Nasser Al-Bakhiti, the representative of Ansarullah (the Houthis' movement) at Yemen's National Dialogue Conference, told Al-Monitor in a phone interview about his group’s new religious-political approach for Yemen.

Bakhiti asserted that his movement has a great interest in the success of the national dialogue, indicating that the regime's old guard, the Islamic party of Islah (which combines Salafis and Muslim Brotherhood members) and the Al-Ahmar family don’t want the dialogue to succeed.
