Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh on Wednesday proposed holding presidential elections by the end of this year in an effort to satisfy democracy protesters demanding his immediate resignation.

"There would be a referendum on a new constitution then parliamentary elections. The elected parliament members would form a government and elections for president of the republic would be held immediately, before the end of 2011," said a document passed to opposition groups and to army commander Ali Mohsen, who has declared his support for the protesters.
