D&C 101: 77 According to the laws and constitution of the people, which I have suffered to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles;

What`s next for Yemen?:

SANAA, Yemen (UPI) — Yemen may have reached the point of no return in its slow march towards democracy. Last week`s presidential and local elections have set the pace for change in this staunchly traditionalist nation, despite the re-election of long-time President Ali Abdallah Saleh for a third seven-year term.

Saleh, who ruled the country for 28 years, faces the challenge of keeping his campaign promises to advance democracy and fight widespread corruption. …

… After experiencing the taste of freedom and democracy, what is certain is that Yemen ‘won`t be the same,’ explained by Mohamed al-Tayeb, a former minister and chairman of the Human Rights Committee in the Shoura Council.
