Yemen's ruling party has informed the Gulf Arab sponsors of a political transition plan that it accepts the proposal in full, party spokesman Tariq Shami told Reuters.

"The ruling party informed the foreign ministers of the GCC of their acceptance of the Gulf initiative in full," he said.

The Gulf Cooperation Council Plan stipulates that Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has faced months of mass protests, will hand over power to his vice-president one month after an agreement is signed with opposition forces, and be granted immunity from prosecution.
