Yemeni Vice President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi assumed the presidency of Yemen following President Ali Abdullah Saleh's departure to Saudi Arabia on Sunday (June 5th) to receive treatment. The president suffered injuries during a missile strike on a mosque inside the presidential compound Friday.

Saleh was seen walking off the Saudi aircraft that carried him to Riyadh but had visible injuries on his neck, head and face, according to wire reports.

Hadi was born in Thkin in Abyan province in 1945. He rose through the military ranks serving as an officer in the Federation of South Arabia Army in 1966 before becoming a lieutenant general in 1997.

According to the ruling Congress Party, Hadi will serve as president on an interim basis until Saleh returns. The opposition contends that Saleh's departure entitles the vice president to take over the presidency for 60 days, whereupon elections are to be held. Saleh could then return as a citizen but not as president. The same terms were outlined in an agreement brokered by the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) that was not signed by Saleh.

Tareq al-Shami, spokesman for the ruling Congress Party, told Al-Shorfa, "The president will return after a few days and will resume his duties as president. This is not the first nor will it be the last instance where the vice president is assigned the functions of the presidency when he [the president] travels abroad. This is a constitutional measure to safeguard the country."

Regarding the transfer of authority and the possibility of implementing the GCC initiative, al-Shami said, "Hadi is the secretary-general of the ruling party and has led the political dialogue with the opposition, but he has ruled out conducting the dialogue or implementing an initiative that excludes the president."

Hadi began to exercise the functions of the presidency by convening a meeting of military commanders close to Saleh and family members before the president left for treatment. Saleh's son Ahmad, the commander of the Republican Guard and Special Forces that are loyal to the president, attended the meeting.

Mohammed Qahtan, spokesman for the Joint Meeting Parties, which comprises the main opposition parties, said during a Sunday press conference, "The Yemeni people will do everything in their power to prevent Saleh from re-entering Yemen."

He said it is unlikely Saleh would return, at least in the short term, based on news of the re-location of members of the president's family, a story which was denied by the official Saba news agency.

Mohammed al-Mutawakil, a member of the Joint Meeting Parties' Supreme Council, said that Yemenis should think about the country's future and not look back. He said the interim presidency and the scope of its role should be discussed with the ruling party and GCC mediators.

Mutawakil highlighted the importance of bringing the media and the security situation under control in the near future to ensure a successful transition and build a civil state. He emphasised the importance of the Congress Party's participation in the coming phase.

The Organising Committee of the Peaceful Youth Revolution said their non-violent struggle would continue through sit-ins until all objectives of the revolution are achieved and its demands are met.

Celebrations erupted in the country's Change and Freedom Squares when citizens heard about Saleh's departure.

Wasim al-Qurashi, a member of the Youth Revolution Committee, told Al-Shorfa, "Today is a holiday and an achievement worth celebrating, as it marks the completion of the first phase of the revolution, and we assert that we shall persist with and escalate our activities until we achieve all its aims."

Fahd Al-Munifi, a member of Youth Revolution's media committee, said they agreed to the vice-president leading during the transition, "on condition it is not circumvented and a coup is not staged against it. Hadi is an agreeable choice".

Opposition forces loyal to Hashed tribal leader Sheikh Sadeq al-Ahmar announced Sunday they would abide by a truce agreement. Hadi agreed to withdraw government troops from the Sanaa neighbourhood where clashes had occurred and to lift roadblocks that were set up in some areas of the capital, according to wire reports.

"The truce has been applied. Seventy-five percent of it is applied. We are hopeful about implementing a complete truce if Saleh's forces adhere to it," Abdul Qawi al-Qaisi, the head of al-Ahmar's office told Al-Shorfa.

Al-Qaisi added, "Saleh's snipers killed four of Sheikh Sadiq's supporters, two of them yesterday and two others today, Monday morning."

He added that the government is supposed to withdraw its military presence according to the agreement in return for al-Ahmar's supporters vacating government buildings.

    There is a saying that whoever is a neighbor of rich people will be rich too. I have visited about half of the Gulf States and I saw how they live. If the supporters of the tyrant knew the luxury these peoples live in, then they would weep endlessly over the living conditions of Yemen, as its citizens are denied the simplest rights. Internationally, Yemen is one of the poorest and underdeveloped countries of the world, and it is among the countries that depend heavily on aids and loans.

    President Ali Abdullah Saleh will return safely and honorably to his homeland, even if he does not rule the country. He will remain the leader and the brave knight of the Arabs, and the strongest evidence is that God saved him from death. If anyone has doubts regarding the status of the Yemeni president among the Arabs and worldwide, I advise you to listen to the speech of the Islamic scholar Ayad Al-Qarani. Please, try to understand that revolution means changing the people and state for the better, rather than assassinating the president in the house of God, let alone the termination of services and means of transportation and fabricating names and corpses. We ask God to guide the arrogant and to protect Yemen.

    Those who want Ali Abdullah Saleh to return are either slaves of the sultan or mentally retarded, if they are free. If they were not slaves or mentally backward, then is it logical that they should love him, while he wants to bequeath the authority to his son and transform the republic into a monarchy? Do such people behave in this way to vex the opposition parties, including the Islah Party, the Socialist Party, the Nasiri Party, etc.? We have to know your reasons for expressing your wish for his return. Did you forget that life is actually a movement, not just stillness? You must understand why the youth and the educated elite countrywide demand change and to move to the second republic. We have to know the reality of what was going on in Yemen for the past 30 years, since the assassination of the martyr Ibrahim Al-Hamadi, who led Yemen and achieved specific leaps. Unfortunately, the tribal forces and backwardness dragged Yemen back, with the support of the sisterly neighboring state. During these three decades, Yemen did not rely on itself; its development horizons were very limited and it achieved almost nothing, as far as liberation from tyranny, aggression, establishment of justice, citizenship, equality, etc. During the rule of Saleh, the tribal system returned strongly and the resources of the state were shared by a group of opportunists who sought to achieve their personal interests. During this period, Yemen became again dependent on foreign aid, gifts and loans in order to build development projects, despite their unfair conditions. This degraded the state and it was classified as a failed state. We also became the world’s poorest and most underdeveloped state, where justice is missing and the military institution is not united, and where citizens are divided into classes and a gang of the ruling party controls the money and lands of the state and the government jobs. The powerful people also used to exercise all forms of extortion against the local, Arab, and foreign investors. The image of the Yemeni person was tarnished internally and externally, and he was considered a beggar or a terrorist. I do not know what the basis of your love is, and your desire for the return of Ali Saleh to continue ruling the country and to prolong the suffering of Yemen and its people. The Yemeni people are great and civilized, and they deserve to have a better life, as God wanted them to live like the rest of the peoples of the world. Please, deliberate before making judgments against the youth of the revolution of change. These are the wishes of the people who aspire to freedom. Let all the parties go to hell. God is the guide.

May God keep him safe, and the countdown has started for the fall of the traitors and enemies of the homeland and nation.

All of this is because of the practices of the president, who is loved by some people. This is the time for change, as stated the poet of Hadhramaut, who said that nothing lasts forever. This is the time for the ship to land safely. Long live my great people, who have been oppressed over the past thirty years.

Many people, including me and all the honorable Iraqis, confirm that the time of the personal interests has ended and we have to allow the youth to build and draw their future.

    This is the best time for the Houthis to restore their strength, in the absence of the state and its inability to chase them. They have benefited from the so-called arenas of estrangement that have no relationship with the change. They can now import heavy and light arms from local or foreign sources, because the state is busy with the so-called revolutionaries, who are in fact Houthis who only aim at tearing up the homeland, blocking the roads and causing unrest. Hence, the state is required to use an iron fist against them and arrest those outlaws who betrayed the home and the leader of the procession, Ali Abdullah Saleh; may God protect him from the evils of the renegades, mercenaries and parties of the bloody, separatist and destructive Joint Meeting. O God! Save us from their evils. Amen, O Lord of the Worlds.

    O God! Protect our president. I swear if the Yemeni revolution had been honest in its objectives, it would have won within a few days, but what do we expect from a revolution that only cares about abuses and is based on hatred, with the aim of taking power at the expense of the citizens? Down with Adil Al-Imari, i.e. the Nasiri party, and Wasim Al-Qurashi, i.e. the Islah party. From the Yemen of loyalty and love

    Those who support Saleh are either naïve, and know nothing about his behavior, or ignorant, or they benefit from his stay in power, or they are afraid of the threats of Saleh and his empty speeches.
