( dpa ) - Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga called Wednesday for a power-sharing government to end the conflict in the East African country, in an interview with German television.
President Mwai Kibaki could remain in power, while the opposition put up the prime minister, Odinga told national public broadcaster ARD.
But Odinga, who claims the December 27 presidential elections were rigged, demanded that Kibaki first implement constitutional reforms that would enhance the independence of the judiciary and give stronger roles to parliament and the executive.
Kibaki had thus far resisted reforms of this kind, said Odinga, who is regularly interviewed by German media, as he studied in the former East Germany and speaks good German.
The opposition leader called for support from Germany and the European Union.
Odinga was speaking as former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan was set to begin attempts to mediate a solution.
Annan was scheduled to meet both Kibaki and Odinga Wednesday.
