Yemen's New President Will Be Sworn In Tomorrow

‘Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi has been elected Yemen's new President; he'll be sworn in tomorrow and a formal inaugural ceremony will be held Monday.

He was elected with 99.8% of the vote. His predecessor, ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Salih, is returning from the US and expected to attend the inauguration. Hadi was Salih's Vice President.

The Yemeni Revolution isn't looking very revolutionary right at the moment.
