Away from media glare, the leaders discussed ways to end the stalemate over election of the new prime minister and speed up the delayed peace and constitution-drafting processes for two days.

But like previous occasions, it remained inconclusive as they failed to agree on the contentious issues.

Although details of the meeting were not available, local media quoting a senior NC leader informed that the parties discussed all issues threadbare.

Caretaker Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal also attended the meeting where five leaders each from the three parties were present.

The Maoists were led by party chief Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda', Nepali Congress by its PM poll candidate Ram Chandra Poudel and CPN-UML by Jhalanath Khanal.

Nepal is without an effective government since the past four months and despite 16 rounds of voting in parliament lawmakers have failed to elect a new prime minister.

The current impasse has also affected the fragile peace process and delayed drafting of the new constitution, which have to be over by May 28, 2011.
