Yemeni parties agreed on Tuesday to appoint an associate of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi as prime minister, two aides of Hadi said, a move some Yemenis expect may lead to the withdrawal of Shi'ite Muslim fighters from the capital Sanaa.

Hadi was expected to ask Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak bin Mubarak, the director of his office, later on Tuesday to form a government, under an accord between the president and several parties, including the Shi'ite Houthi movement, intended to create a more inclusive administration.

Houthi forces overran the capital last month, allowing them to dictate terms to Hadi's weakened, fractured government.
