In January 2011, less than a month after the demonstrations that came to be known as the Arab Spring began in Tunisia, Yemenis took to the streets to protest their government. One year later, they have embarked on a path to reform delineated by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) initiative which includes the February 21 election to affirm former vice president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Al-Hadi as president. In this podcast, Grant Kippen, IFES Chief of Party in Yemen talks to us about Yemen’s transition’s process and the importance of the February 21 election.
