Salih to Run

Following three days of "popular" rallies President Salih has reversed his decision not to run for another six year term, and has agreed to stand for re-election which he will on 10 September. (I have little to say in this forum, although more will follow. For now, a couple of comments:)

The parade down 'Abd al-Mughni street after Salih announced was exciting to watch, and even more impressive for a popular rally was the fact that all of the mini-buses were numbered with the governorate that they represented written on their front window.

I would like to highlight one piece by Nabil al-Sufi, the editor of News Yemen, writing in al-Hayat.
