But, since they entered it, they seized arms stores, won loyalties and laid down their plans for the day in which they would fight Saleh and probably assassinate him and take over the capital.He dramatically changed the map of the war in Yemen the night he announced on TV that he accepted reconciliation, and assassinating him will not change this.
"The problem is not with the General People's Congress as a party or with its members".
Yemen's ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh has been killed by Houthi rebels near the capital, Sanaa, a development expected to have major implications for the war in the Arab world's poorest country.
Sayyid said Saleh and other top party officials had came under Huthi gunfire as they fled Sanaa.
Sources close to Saleh said that the head of the former president's security detail, Hussein al-Hamidi, was also killed, but did not provide further details. His designation could further complicate the Saudi-led coalition's intention to operate with Saleh's forces against the Houthis, as United States forces refuel Saudi aircrafts in Yemen.
Albukhaiti said that fighters had secured key areas south of the capital, including the "very strategic" al-Mesbahi residential area, which is approximately 200 metres from Saleh's home.
Saleh, who ruled Yemen for more than three decades, was among the strongmen caught in the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011.

The Houthis, who are believed to be backed by Iran, stormed Sanaa in September 2014.
Warfare between the erstwhile allies has torn densely populated Sanaa for days, with Houthi fighters seizing control of much of the capital and on Monday blowing up Mr Saleh's house. Saleh and the Houthis conducted a multi-year insurgency against the internationally-recognized government of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
Any hope of the coalition that Mr Saleh could have been bought off to help turn the tables against the Houthis after a protracted stalemate, in which a Saudi-led blockade and internal fighting has exposed millions to hunger and epidemic, has been dashed.
In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition intervened to reinstate Hadi's government.
"You can not say this is the end of his political movement, but it's a very big blow", he said. It could easily kick off new violence between Saleh's supporters and Houthi militants.
The tactical alliance between Saleh and the Houthis had often appeared fragile, with both groups suspicious of each other's ultimate motives and sharing little ideological ground. In recent weeks, Houthis have claimed responsibility for rocket attacks against targets in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which Gulf leaders have publicly accused Iran of helping facilitate.
"Let's join hands to end the control of these. criminal gangs and. open a new chapter to rid our beloved Yemen of this nightmare", Hadi said from Saudi Arabia, where he lives in exile.
