The Yemeni opposition coalition said on Tuesday it plans to declare the formation of a "National Ruling Council". The council will rule the country during the transitional period without President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

In a statement issued by Yemen's opposition Joint Meeting Parties, it said the organization set August 17th for a meeting to declare the formation of the National Ruling Council. It is intended to head Yemen's opposition forces in bringing political change and ruling the country during the upcoming post-Saleh transitional period.

The decision came just a day after the U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the US believes Yemen can move forward with a transitional government without President Saleh. The veteran president was discharged from the Saudi Military Hospital on Saturday to a Saudi government compound for recuperation following two-month treatment for injuries from an attack on his presidential palace.
