President Saleh to return home immediately after treatment, says GPC official

[04/August/2011]


SANA’A, August 04 (Saba)- An official of the General People's Congress (GPC) said on Thursday President Ali Abdullah Saleh will return home when his treatment period finishes.

"President Ali Abdullah Saleh is still Yemen’s legitimate President until presidential elections are held. A authorization to Vice President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi does not mean the transfer of power", head of the GPC’s Political Department Abdullah Ghanim said in an interview.

Ghanim made it clear that the transfer of power in these circumstances and in accordance with the article No. 116 of the Constitution is an attempt to exploit the crime that occurred on 03 June in the mosque of the Presidential palace.

"The President is not disable in the exercise of his functions. He was not permanently disabled despite the gravity of the crime", he added.
