Sana'a, Apr 11, 2011- Yemen's opposition coalition the Joint Meeting Parties, JMP, officially rejected the GCC initiative because it gives immunity to Saleh and his followers and does not call for the immediate withdrawal from power for President Saleh.
Mohammed Basendowah, President of the opposition dialogue committee said, "The GCC initiative was rejected because it was different from the one we received from the gulf ambassadors in Yemen."
The JMP said that the change in stance of GCC was to please the Saleh regime. "It's sad that the GCC were not credible and was forced by Saleh to change it's initiative against the will of the Yemeni people," said Basendowah.
