Yemeni President Saleh To Step Down in 30 Days



SANAA (AP) – Yemen's embattled president agreed Saturday to a proposal by Gulf Arab mediators to step down within 30 days and hand power to his deputy in exchange for immunity from prosecution, a major about-face for the autocratic leader who has ruled for 32 years.


Nakatakdang bumaba sa kanyang puwesto ang presidente ng Yemen na si Ali Abdullah Saleh sa loob ng 30 araw kapalit ng hindi pagpapataw sa kanya ng anumang kaso. Ililipay niya, matapos ang 32 taon, ang kanyang kapangyarihan sa kanyang deputy.


A coalition of seven opposition parties said they also accepted the deal but with reservations. Even if the differences are overcome, those parties do not speak for all of the hundreds of thousands of protesters seeking President Ali Abdullah Saleh's ouster, and signs were already emerging that a deal on those terms would not end confrontations in the streets.


Ang koalisyon ng oposisyong binubuo ng 7 partido ay tinanggap ang kasunduan ng mga reserbasyon. Subali't hindi ito ang nais ng libu-libong taong nagprotesta at ang kasunduan ay maaaring hindi sapat upang matigul ang kaguluhan sa mga lansangan.


A day earlier, protesters staged the largest of two months of demonstrations, filling a five-lane boulevard across the capital with a sea of hundreds of thousands of people. Day after day of protest have presented a stunning display of defiance in the face of a crackdown that has included sniper attacks and killed more than 130 people.


Noong Biyernes, nagdaos ng pinakamalawak na protesta sa loob ng 2 buwan ang mga Yemeni na pumuno sa limang linyang boulevard sa bawat sulok ng kapitolyo. Ang pag-aaklas at ang pag-alis ng mga kapanalig , kabilang na ang mga military commanders, ay nagpahina sa panunungkulan ni Saleh. Si Pangulong Saleh ay hayagang kapanalig ng Amerika.


The uprising and a wave of defections by allies, including several top military commanders, have left Saleh clinging to power and now appear to be pushing him to compromise on his earlier refusal to leave office before his term ends in 2013.
