Join Meeting Parties (JMP):
•  Islah
•  Yemeni Socialist Party
•  Nasserite Unionist Party
•  Socialist Arab Baath Party
•  al-Haqq Party (Truth Party)
•  Public Forces Union

Coalition of the strongest opposition parties created in 1996. From time to time this coalition fails in coordinating and acting as a homogeneous bloc as happened during the 1999 presidential election when the Islah party had individually nominated President Saleh.

National Council of Opposition Parties (NCOP)
•  Democratic Nasserite Party
•  Democratic National Front
•  National Social Party
•  Liberation Front Party
•  Popular Unity Party
•  Yemeni League
•  Democratic Union of Popular Forces

All of these parties have not representation in the parliament and have not any serious opposition positions in the Yemeni political arena.
Till 2006 presidential elections the NCOP has support the ruling party candidature. However in the last elections it supported an official candidate.
