UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday encouraged all parties in Nepal to step up their efforts to form "a consensus government that would prioritize the implementation of all peace process commitments."

A statement, issued by Ban's spokesman here, said: "Following the resignation of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal, the secretary-general encourages all parties in Nepal to intensify their efforts towards the formation of a consensus government that would prioritize the implementation of all peace process commitments."

"The secretary-general also urges speedy progress on the issue of the integration and rehabilitation of Maoist army personnel," the statement said.

The Nepalese prime minister on Wednesday announced his resignation in a televised speech, saying that he wanted to bring an end to political deadlock in the country and move the peace process forward.

Nepal was appointed little more than a year ago to head a 22-party coalition that succeeded the Maoist government.

After his resignation, the incumbent government will be a caretaker government.
