EU Presidency statement on the Agreement by the Kenyan parties to a Coalition Government

The Presidency welcomes a power-sharing agreement between Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The Presidency commends the work of the Panel of Eminent Personalities led by the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan whose determination was crucial in the difficult task of reaching this agreement.

The EU has strongly supported the political dialogue in Kenya under the auspices of Mr. Annan and will continue to do so throughout the process. The agreement reached today signifies the commitment of both parties to find a legitimate political way out of the post-election situation in the country.

The Presidency believes that this is an important step towards peace and reconciliation in Kenya, and hopes that both sides will build on this momentum in addressing the remaining issues.
