KATHMANDU, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Nepali President Ram Baran Yadav has asked the political parties represented in the Constituent Assembly to form a consensus government by July 7, one of his aides said Thursday.

The President's office sent a letter to the Parliament Secretariat Thursday morning suggesting that such a government be formed in the wake of resignation of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal on Wednesday, according to report.

The president's aide Lalit Basnet said that if the political parties failed to form a consensus government, a priority mandated by the Interim Constitution, then the parties will have to form a majority government.

PM Nepal resigned on Wednesday, blaming the main opposition, Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), for non-cooperation and obstruction throughout his 13-month tenure.

He has been asked by the president to continue as caretaker prime minister until a new government takes oath of office.
