(The President)

Ahh, and how could I have forgotten this. Al-Wasat has a story quoting "well-informed sources" that there will be a large demonstration in the Red Sea port city of Hudaydah with the purpose of convincing President Salih to stand for re-election in September.

This is one of the first - of what Husni Mubarak once called "smart-ass" (election) tricks" - but it is not likely to be the last. Plus if you are in Hudaydah why would you demonstrate anyways, it is too damn hot and humid. You should just kick back and chew some shami.
