It is the Photo of Ali Abdullah Saleh is the first and current President of the Republic of Yemen. who had previously served as President of the Yemen Arab Republic (North Yemen) from 1978 until 1990, at which time he assumed the office of ...chairman of the Presidential Council of the Republic of Yemen (unified Yemen). He is the longest-serving president of Yemen, ruling since 1978Calling for an orderly transition, Saleh, who has long projected himself as the pillar of stability in a tough political environment, said power could be transferred “peacefully and through constitutional means”. He invited the protesters for a “political dialogue” that could “pave the way for a political transition.Whereas analysts of Yemen says that the opposition appears adamant and are set to seek the President's immediate departure.On March 24,2011, opposition groups rejected Saleh’s earlier offer to quit at the year-end, following a fresh presidential election. No dialogue and no initiatives for this dead regime,” said Mohammed al-Sabry spokesman of the opposition coalition, on March 24,2011. Saleh faced a fresh political challenge on March 25,2011 when tens of thousands protesters, after Friday prayers on March 25,2011, assembled in capital Sana'a as Change (Taghyir) square, the scene of a bloodbath on March 25,2011, when gunmen climbed rooftop and killed fifty two protesters.In other protests on March 25,2011 in the region, security forces killed at least twenty protesters in Daraa, Syria's southern city. Reuters news agency is also reporting heavy gunfire in the city, where anti-government protests are spiralling in recent days. In Bahrain, where sustained protests have led to Saudi Arabia's military intervention, police have reportedly broken protests in the villages of Karzakan, Dair, Sitra and Duraz.Last week's killings in Sana'a were a turning point which breached the Yemeni military, as it led to defections of many senior officers including Ali Mohsen, commander of the northwest military zone. Tensions within Yemen's rapidly splintering military spiked on March 25,2011 after presidential guards loyal to Saleh came close to confrontations with the pro-opposition military. Army units backing protesters fired in the air to deter government supporters from disrupting the rally.General Mohsen has downplayed fears of a military coup in the wake of the vertical split within the military. . He pointed out that Arab countries were no longer willing to accept military takeovers, as people now wanted to be governed within the framework of a modern civilian state. Let us hope and pray for amicable solution to unrest in Yemen to restore peace, progress & tranquility soon!
