(Dec 02, 2007) The Cabinet of the interim government of Nepal agreed on November 20, 2007, to extend the term of the U.N. mission in Nepal by six months. The government must formally notify U.N. headquarters at least one month before the expiry of the term, which began on January 23, 2007, in order to obtain an extension. Before that can take place, the government must consult Nepal's seven political parties, including the CPN-Maoist Party. In addition, in response to public pressure and the demands of civil servants, dozens of whom resigned their posts recently to protest the lack of adequate government security measures, the Cabinet directed the Home Ministry to improve the security situation in the country.
