President Ram Baran Yadav extended the deadline — fifth time in less than month — for the big four political parties to propose a new prime minister by consensus.
The president's office said the deadline has been extended by another five days. "The President has asked the parties to forge consensus and propose the new prime minister by Saturday," a statement issued by the president's office said.
There are speculations that the President has adopted an escapist attitude on the issue as he would be away in India for about a week beginning December 23 , and allow the situation to linger.
As the four parties failed to complete the assigned job within the deadline, he hosted yet another meeting and asked top leaders to suggest a name by Saturday.
