Mr N’Guessan is facing charges of terrorism and sedition after rejecting President Ouattara’s re-election and announcing the establishment of a parallel government.

President Ouattara had invited his rival, former President Henri Konan Bédié, for talks following violence.

Mr Bédié is yet to respond to the invitation.
