Sana'a, Mar 27, 2011, Yemen's ruling General People Congress party, (GPC), affirmed on Sunday that President Ali Abdullah Saleh will stay until his presidential term expires in 2013.
In a statement by the ruling party which came after a meeting President Saleh had with members of the General People Congress, it discussed the ongoing political crisis, and affirmed Saleh's right to stay in power. The statement renewed the calls for the opposition coalition, the Joint Meeting Party, JMP, to resume the dialogue for the sake of the country.
President Saleh has been facing escalating protests since mid February demanding the fall of Saleh's regime.
