Yemen's major opposition group, the Yemeni Congregation for Reform, has reached a consensus with Shia Houthis following months of armed clashes in the Middle Eastern country.

The Yemeni Congregation for Reform, also known as the Islamic Party of Reforms, signed a tribes-mediated deal with the Houthis and appointed Al-Hussein Al-Dhameen as the new governor of northeast Al-Jouf Province as part of an effort to put an end to armed struggle with the local Shia group, IRNA quoted Aljazeera news network as reporting on Saturday night.

The Islamic party is a member of Yemen's opposition coalition which plans to declare the formation of a national council in the coming days. The council is meant to rule Yemen during the transitional period once Ali Abdullah Saleh is ousted.

Al-Jouf Province is Yemen's second province, after northern province of Sa'ada, that has been out of the control and supervision of Saleh.

The armed clashes between the Houthi group and forces loyal to Yemeni Congregation for Reform in Al-Jouf region ended after tribesmen and opposition figures' mediation.
