Opposition leader: February revolution turns Yemen to a new stage

Alsahwah.net –Secretary-General of the Yemeni Opposition Party, Yaseen Saeed Noaman, said the Yemeni revolution could turn Yemen to a new stage in its history.

He praised the large turnout of Yemenis in the elections, stressing that this revolution regained the glow of previous Yemeni revolutions, September and October.

Yemenis went to the polls Tuesday to elect a new president: current Vice President Abed Rabbo Mansour al-Hadi, the only candidate on the ballot.

Hadi will succeed Ali Abdullah Saleh, whose ouster was part of a Gulf States-backed agreement.
