Nepali Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal Friday urged the main opposition Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M) to lend support for extension of the Constituent Assembly (CA)'s term, which will expire on May 28.

Inaugurating a newly built bridge here, the prime minister said that the country will plunge into a serious crisis if the UCPN-M did not support, eKantipur.com reported.

PM Nepal expressed hopes that UCPN-M will definitely assist in extending the CA's tenure.

"It is certain that the new constitution won't be drafted by May 28. I am confident that the Maoists will come to terms," said the prime minister, "A grave misfortune will happen if the CA's mandate is not extended."

He also made it clear that the current government's biggest challenge is to take the peace process to a logical end and claimed everyone has been striving for the same.
