A long awaited election
After the revolution comes a long awaited election. Yemenis took to the polling booths despite recent outbreaks of violence. The winner didn't come as a surprise, given that the only candidate in the running was the incumbent Vice-president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. This election was more about getting rid of the old regime under Ali Abdullah Saleh. The new President will have a lot on his plate but says Yemen has closed an old chapter and is looking ahead to a better future.
