25/2/2012 -


Alsahwah.net-Yemen's new president Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadh took the constitutional oath on Saturday before parliament.   

 Hadi stood as the sole candidate to replace Saleh in a U.S.-backed power transfer deal brokered by Gulf neighbors.

More than 60 percent of eligible voters had taken part. Hadi's inauguration is scheduled for Monday, which Saleh is to attend.

Saleh returned to Yemen on Friday after seeking treatment in the United States for injuries suffered in an assassination attempt last year.
