Nepal's parliament failed to elect a new prime minister with majority votes on Wednesday during a session of the Constituent Assembly in Kathmandu.
It comes after two major candidates: Chairman of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist, Prachanda and the Nepali Congress Deputy President Ramchandra Paudel failed to secure simple majority.
Meanwhile, the Communist Party of Nepal--Unified Marxist Leninist-- has withdrawn its candidate for the post.
The Nepali Parliament has announced a new vote for the prime minister's position will take place on Friday.
