Brazzaville - Rebels from Central African Republic and the country's political opposition have agreed on a candidate for prime minister.

Under the terms of a cease-fire signed last week, the opposition is to choose a candidate to serve in the government of long serving President Francois Bozize.

The head of the rebellion, Michel Djotodia, announced on Tuesday in Republic of Congo that they have chosen Nicolas Tiangaye for the post. The sharing of ministerial portfolios, though, has yet to be determined.

Rebels from four groups who formed an alliance threatened to overthrow Bozize before agreeing at peace talks to form a national unity government. The rebels took control of a dozen towns, but halted their advance before reaching the capital.

Under the deal, Bozize will remain in office until his term ends in 2016.
