Nepali main opposition Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M) on Thursday formed a three-member talks team under the leadership of party Chairman Prachanda to hold discussion on forming national consensus government under its leadership.

The standing committee meeting held here Thursday morning formed a talks team following the resignation of the Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal on Wednesday evening to hold discussion with the political parties to form the new government.

Emerging from the meeting, the UCPN-M Secretary CP Gajurel said the meeting concluded that the party should lead the new government as being the single largest party in the Constituent Assembly.

He said, "Three-member talks team has been formed to give a pace to the national government formation ."

The meeting also decided to draw the attention of the president towards urging to form the new government under the UCPN-M leadership as the present coalition government has been unsuccessful, Gajurel informed.

However, Nepali Congress and the Communist Party Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist have ruled out the possibility of forming new government under the UCPN-M leadership as long as they do not transform themselves into a civilian party.
