At present, the concept of democracy has turned into a universally popular notion. The nature of participation through political behavior has become meaningful as has happened to the approach to urban life and its values as well as the desirable democracy. Political participation is considered to be one of the foundations of democracy and ground for political growth. It is to be noted that political participation determines the fate of nations. This survey seeks to investigate the grounds for the barriers of the success of political development in Yemen. Moreover, it would be highly helpful in dealing with national and international threats to understand the effective factors in decision-making, namely religious, social and political gaps in Yemen. The article aims at looking into and elucidating the grounds upon which the prevention of political development in Yemen which has occurred for a long time, might be explained.
