ODM leader Raila Odinga has listed conditions even as he readies himself for a dialogue with President William Ruto.
The ODM leader on Sunday called off the mass protests in a move he said reciprocated President Ruto's gesture.
But even as he showed commitment to dialogue, Raila warned that the demos might resume after a week if no meaningful progress is made in the next week.
Among the conditions, Raila wants to consider is the release of those arrested as a result of holding peaceful protests as well as the ending of court cases facing Azimio supporters over their peaceful protests.
'In accepting the call for dialogue, we ask that all arrests and prosecutions related to our demonstrations be stopped with immediate effect," he said.
At the same time, Raila said discussions on issues raised should fasten and begin as quickly as possible.
"We agree that a balanced parliamentary process co-chaired by both sides and backed by experts from outside should proceed," he noted.
"In our view, this committee must be composed with immediate effect with strict deadlines for resolving the crisis facing the country."
At the same time, Raila also reiterated that the four commissioners who resigned and kicked out of the office to be reinstated.
"We do not want to see the 4 commissioners who had said no to be sacrificed. We want those commissioners to be reinstated so that we can be able to move in as a country in one and a united way," he said.
