Yemen’s protest movement insisted Sunday on President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s rapid exit and prosecution after his party accepted a Gulf plan for him to quit in 30 days in a move hailed by Washington.

The United States urged a peaceful transition after Saleh’s ruling General People’s Congress (GPC) party said late Saturday it accepted a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) plan under which he would quit following months of protests.

However, Saleh himself said any change of regime can only be through “ballot boxes and referendums,” and said he could not give into a “coup.”

“You call on me from the US and Europe to hand over power,” Saleh told the BBC in an interview. “Who shall I hand it over to? Those who are trying to make a coup? No. We will do it through ballot boxes and referendums.”

He accused the West of supporting his opponents whom he said were backed by Al-Qaeda.
