Kathmandu, Aug 3 (UNI) Formation of government seems uncertain after the Maoists' proposal to form government excluding Nepali Congress (NC) was rejected by CPN-UML, media reports today said.

The Maoists have intensified the discussion with various political parties to form a new government under their leadership.

The Maoist has said the party is willing to form the government without the NC if the attempts for a national consensus fail.

The UML rejected the Maoist's proposal during a meeting held at UML party headquarters in Balkhu this morning, Kantipur quoted an UML leader as saying.

President Ram Baran Yadav has called the Maoists to form a government with consensus as no party has the clear majority in the recently concluded CA polls.

The Maoists emerged as the largest party with 227 seats in the 601 seat CA. Maoists' candidate was defeated in the recently held presidential polls despite being the largest party.

NC, MJF and UML had formed an alliance to defeat the Maoists presidential candidate and these parties became able to elect president, vice president and chairman of the CA respectively.
