KATHMANDU, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Nepali Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal tendered his resignation to President Ram Baran Yadav after six months and 11 days of his election as the Prime Minister Sunday evening.

As per the constitutional provisions, the president asked him to bear the caretaker role till the Legislature-Parliament elects a new government.

The Communist Party Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist chairman, who was elected as Prime Minister on February 3 after a seven- month long impasse due to rounds of futile voting, quit after failing to make a remarkable progress on peace process.

He was under pressure from within his party and the main opposition Nepali Congress to quit as per the five-point agreement forged in May end while extending the Constituent Assembly tenure and, thereby, pave the way for the formation of national consensus government which it envisioned.
