SANAA - A UN envoy said on Tuesday that Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh is preparing to sign an agreement with his opponents to hand over his powers - although he has already backed out three times from such a deal at the last minute.

Under a plan crafted by Yemen's six Gulf Arab neighbors, Saleh would transfer his powers to his deputy, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, ahead of an early election.

However, Saleh has repeatedly failed to sign the deal, which aims to end months of protests that have paralyzed the country.
