07-12-2010 17:00 BJT

KATHMANDU, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Nepali caretaker government Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal on Monday urged all the political parties to strive to form a new government at the earliest.

Speaking at the budget session of the parliament in the Constituent Assembly hall, the outgoing prime minister said the country is in a special phase in the aftermath of his resignation.

Expressing his concern over the delay in forming national consensus government even as the deadline extended by the president is coming to an end, Nepal said, "My resignation was made as the basis for a national consensus earlier, but it is unfortunate that no conclusion has been made until now toward that end even after my resignation."

He said the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M) has not made any attempt to carry out the pending tasks related to the peace process as per its commitment.

Stressing that the main opposition party UCPN-M should transform itself into a civilian party, the prime minister said consensus can be forged only after the concerned stakeholders rise above their party interests and become pragmatic.

The outgoing prime minister also said the political parties should concentrate on taking the peace process to a logical conclusion and constitution drafting.

Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal resigned from his post on June 30.
