Yemen's Opposition Rejects GCC Initiative, and Accepts Qatari Offer

By Fatik Al-Rodaini

Sana'a, Apr 14, 2011- Yemen's opposition coalition, the Joint Meeting Parties, JMP, rejected the Gulf Cooperation Council's initiative to solve Yemen's current situation between the opposition coalition and the ruling General People Congress party.

Private source said that the JMP refused the GCC's offer and accepted the Prime minster's vision in which he called on immediate ouster for the Yemen's embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council offered its own proposal Sunday to end the unrest and called on Saleh to transfer power to his deputy as part of a deal with the opposition. The deal did not, however, specify a time frame and included immunity from prosecution for Saleh and his family.

Opposition forces rejected the proposal.
