After two months of protests, Yemen’s political opposition has unveiled its most detailed proposal yet of how it envisions the transition of power in the country. Its plan calls for President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s resignation and a handover of power to the vice president, who would then supervise a national dialogue that would advise on planning for elections and preparations for constitutional reforms, The Associated Press reports. It also includes a proposal to hold a referendum vote on a new constitution before holding elections.
