Presidential Election Program 
Allah  in  His  Holy Book calls on Muslims to stick to grouping and do not resort to division and remember Allahs grace who made you brothers after you were enemies, and says that the honor of hoisting the banner of Allah on earth was feared by heavens, earth and mountains and accepted by the human being..
And peace by upon the messenger of Allah his family and all his Sahaba.
Our Yemeni nation is witnessing this year  one of its most important political events, which represents a prominent and qualitative turnover along the path of deepening its unionist and democratic march. It is the peoples free and direct elections of the president of the country which will be held for the first time in our national history according to the constitution  which stated  that president of the country  is to be elected for two terms each stretching for five years. It has registered a turning point and a very important  step toward bolstering the democratic process and crystallizing the principle of peaceful exchange of power. It has also  led the people into the 21st century with confidence, bright hope, solid with and belief that  Yemeni future will be more developing, modernizing and integrated  with changes of the age in addition to its political, economic, social, cultural and scientific challenges. The free and direct elections, on all levels, represent an embodiment of the peoples free will  and an execution of the constitutional principle which   affirms   that   the people  are the owner   of the authority and it source. Elevating this process  to the level of   direct  and  competitive  elections for  the  presidency clearly indicates that the doctrine of peaceful circulation of  power, which is the highest rank in a democratic process, had become a de facto situation and not merely hopes, dreams or imaginations.
All this proved that the general political  system in Yemen has matured to  pave the way for   such an  important    and qualitative event in the history  of Yemen, to continue the building of the modern Yemeni state, the state of institutions, law and  order, the  state   of  the Yemeni human who aspires towards elevation to the rank of advanced and modern political societies.
The Yemeni  people  today, through  indulging  in the experiment and new leap, affirm that their awareness and practice of shoura and democracy were in extension of an old heritage called for the Islamic Sharia.
Democracy is our model means toward building institution bodies, deepening national unity and achieving comprehensive development.
Historic march of the political life of Yemen ever since the era of Shebans until present state of blessed unity near the end of the second millennium indicate that the system  of shoura and democracy  had displayed that the Yemeni people always rejected tyrannical and dictatorial regimes. It also affirmed that popular struggle is based on freedom as an essential right, since freedom is an instinct that  Almighty  Allah had set in humans.
Ali Abdullah Saleh has proven in all his stands, commitments and pledges that he would never alienate himself from the peoples march,   who believes in  the  Islamic creed and tolerant sharia and who  defends their national unity, social justice and economic development. He has also  been struggling for the defense of democracy, public and individual freedoms, human rights, security, stability and social  peace.
The  keenness  of  Ali Abdullah Saleh   President  of  the Republic and Chairman  of the PGC,  on consolidation  the democratic  march  and  peaceful  circulation   of  power was reflected  in his adoption of the  constitutional amendments limiting the Presidents term of office to only  constitution  was not merely meant as a democratic commitment for holding general elections and direct presidential elections on scheduled legal and constitutional time. But rather, it was a real belief that democracy  was an integrated  values, rights, duties and mechanics in a state power whose is emanated from the people. It is a state in which doctrines of freedom, equality and justice among people  prevail over  their  inter-relations  along   with relations  between its various social and political organizations side by side with doctrines of social cooperation and peace.
All the above – mentioned is linked to protection of national unity within  the framework of the abidance of all individuals and groups by the constitution, law and general discipline.
