Nepalese prime minister Jhalanath Khanal has resigned after only three months in office. Mr. Khanal of the Unified Marxist Leninist party presented his resignation to the country's president Sunday. He is expected to speak to parliament on Monday. Parliament elected Jahlanath Khanal in February after seventeen elections that did not result in a winner. He said he would step down by August 13 unless there was major progress made on the peace process and political reforms. Maoists lawmakers control most of the seats in parliament, but not enough to govern alone. Lawmakers disagreed about the new constitution and about the future of thousands of the former Mao's fighters living in camps.
