Kenya Negotiations "Progressing"

Mediation talks between the government and opposition in Kenya, following deadly clashes during the previous months, are progressing, says Swedish international law expert Hans Corell.

Corell, a former United Nations judicial expert, is currently attending negotiations led by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. Speaking to Swedish Radio news, Corell called the talks held so far constructive.

Corell added, the opposition will most likely get to name the future prime minister. As of now it is unclear though how much executive power the prime minister will have.

Deadly clashes broke out after Kenya’s general election in December when the opposition accused President Mwai Kibaki of fraud.
