Opposition to call off street protests in Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast's opposition will call off street protests that have rocked the West African nation since President Laurent Gbagbo dissolved the electoral commission and government on Feb 12, a spokesman said Friday.

The country announced a new electoral commission president on Friday, a demand that opposition said must be met before it ended protests in which seven people have been killed.

"We will meet with the RDHP and PIT (opposition groups) to announce word of ending the demonstrations," said opposition spokesman Alphonse Djedje Mady. He did not specify when the meeting would take place.
