Egypt's opposition discuss talking to government: sources
Egyptian opposition groups were meeting on Tuesday to plot a path forward, including the possibility of entering into negotiations with the current government, sources said, DPA reported.
Members of three opposition groups told the German Press Agency dpa that talks were under way to coordinate a response to the overture MOnday night from Vice President Omar Suleiman, who said he would open a dialogue with "all political parties."
But it was unclear still if the government would be willing to deal with the largest opposition bloc, the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
There were also signs of some divides with the opposition, over who would be authorized to negotiate on its behalf.
Earlier this week, some groups, including the Brotherhood, appointed Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammed ElBaradei to lead talks with the military and other parties.
However, ElBaradei faces some skepticism within the country for having spent many years abroad, including his time at the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN's nuclear watchdog.
