Yemeni Youth Form the Arab Spring Party

Members of the Yemeni Youth Movement formed the Arab Spring Party this month in order to gain access to the political process and lobby for reform. This is a positive development for the movement and a wise decision as the transition process has now shifted entirely to the elite political level. While their collective voice was formidable, with Saleh out of power, they will need to organize politically in order to afford themselves an opportunity to realize their proposed reforms. Though how much access they will have depends on the true will of the ruling elites to reform the political system in the Post-Saleh era.
