Supreme Court rejects Prachanda’s request for judicial review of earlier verdict on party merger

Full bench led by Chief Justice Rana declines to provide permission for a review of the apex court’s previous verdict to scrap merger between CPN (Maoist Center) and CPN (UML)


KATHMANDU – The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal of the CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to review its earlier verdict to scrap the party’s merger with CPN (UML).

A full-bench led by Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Cholendra Shusher JB Rana decided to not grant the permission for the judicial review of the apex court’s earlier verdict.

Earlier on Tuesday, CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Prachanda had moved to the Supreme Court, seeking judicial review of the apex court’s verdict on March 7 to overturn the decision of the Election Commission to provide the name Nepal Communist Party (NCP) to the merged party and also scrap the unification process between two main Communist parties.

Stating that the apex court had crossed the constitutional and legal limit, Prachanda-led CPN (Maoist Center) had asked the Supreme Court to review the verdict of March 7.
