Marebpress: Sources revealed that the international mediation, led by the United Nations, to settle the political crisis in Yemen was hindered due to sharp differences between the ruling party and the JMP on some points of the road map suggested by the delegate of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Jamal Ben Omar

The sources pointed out that the main point preventing reaching an agreement to accept the UN initiative is the insistence of the leaders of the ruling party (GCP) to confine and limit the delegation of powers of President Saleh to his deputy to represent the ruling party, and to negotiate with the parties and sign the agreement document which concludes the results of the negotiations, which is rejected by the leaders of the JMP who insist that President Saleh should fully transfer his presidential powers to his deputy, Abed Rabbo Mansur Hadi.
