Tawakkol Karman: Requirements, responsibilities ahead of transition government 

Activist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Tawakkol Karman said the transition period refers to requirements and responsibilities we should be committed to, but not to a tenure of time.  

"However, this never means the transition period shall be open indefinitely," she said. "It is not right to give the interim government more time than the one year stated in the final document of the national dialog conference so that it holds elections in accordance with the upcoming electoral law," she said, pointing out the transition government is supposed to achieve all unimplemented requirements such as the outcomes of the dialog conference. 
The legitimacy of the president and government after February 21st depends on their accomplishment of all requirements seriously and effectively in next months, she said, stressing the importance to impose the rule of law in all parts of the country and taking measures for anti-corruption institutions to guarantee good governance.
On the other hand, Karman renewed her call for the priority demands package announced by the youths on the eve of the 11th February revolution's anniversary. The demands included revoking corrupt and unfair oil and gas deals, issuing law for recovering stolen public properties and replacing the anti-corruption and central organization for control and auditing laws in a way which guarantees their harmony with international anti-corruption standards. 
Other demands included disarming militias, finishing the restructuring the national forces, releasing extrajudicial detainees, forming a committee to probe crimes against protesters during the 2011's revolution and opening trials for those involved in these crimes.
