A defected soldier, supporting anti-regime protesters, stands guard as women queue at a polling station in the Al Hasaba neighborhood in Sanaa on Feb. 21, 2012. Yemenis voted Tuesday to instate their U.S.-backed vice president as the new head of state tasked with steering the country out of a crisis created by an anti-government uprising that has raged for a year.
The vote can hardly be called an election as Vice President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi is the only candidate. It is, however, a turning point for the impoverished Arab state, ending President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s 33-year authoritarian rule.
