Nepali Congress (NC) President Girija Prashad Koirala has been appointed as the Prime Minister of the next Nepali government to be formed.

A communique from the Royal Palace Secretariat said that King Gyanendra appointed Koirala Thursday to the post of Prime Minister "as per the unanimous decision of the Seven Party Alliance (SPA) and Article 36 (1) of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal 1990".

A meeting of the SPA on Tuesday unanimously proposed Koirala as the Prime Minister of the next government.

This will be Koirala's fifth stint as the country's Prime Minister.
