HISTORY. Following an agreement reached in Dec. 1989 on a constitution for a unified state, the (northern) Yemen Arab Republic and the (southern) People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen were united as the Republic of Yemen on 22 May 1990. There were 25 opposition votes in the northern parliament, but none in the southern. For the pre-unification history of the two states, see The Stateman’s Year-Book, 1990–91, p. 1596 and 1599.
