Nicaraguan opposition leaders agreed to open talks with the Sandinista government next Thursday to discuss conditions for free and fair general elections in February. The government offered to start a dialogue with delegates of 21 legally registered parties, including the Opposition National Union, the main opposition alliance made up of 14 parties. Opposition proposals will include reforms of the electoral laws and the role of the media in the campaign, a right to vote for exiles, a general amnesty for all political prisoners, and a number of others.
