MANAGUA, Nicaragua – Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said he would start talks with his opponents more than six months after the rupture of the latest dialogue and the arrest round. the next round of talks will begin next Wednesday. He did not say who would be invited.
Students, business and community groups organized in the Civic Alliance took part in the previous tour in July. But many of the leaders of the 2018 protests that led to the negotiations were arrested or went to asylum or expulsion.
Ortega said that talks next week "will not be with this crowd," referring to the alliance. more than 300 people were killed after popular protests that began in mid-April caused by a reduction in the social security system.
