KATHMANDU, April 1: The Supreme Court has refused to review its March 7 verdict to revive the CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center).

A full court comprising Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JBR, Justices Tej Bahadur KC and Prakash Kumar Dhungana on Thursday ordered that its verdict on March 7 will not be reviewed as demanded  by the Chairman of CPN (MC), Pushpa Kamal Dahal.

The apex court had scrapped the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) registered in the name of KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, giving the party to little-known Rishi Kattel who had registered Nepal Communist Party at the Election Commission much before the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) was registered in the names of Oli and Dahal in May 2018.

Maoist Chairman Dahal, earlier on March 30, filed a review petition against the Supreme Court verdict that invalidated the unification between the erstwhile CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center). 

Dahal, in his review petition, argued that the apex court had ordered to invalidate the merge deal between the UML and the Maoist Center against the demand put forth by petitioner Rishi Kattel, who had sought to scrap the name of Nepal Communist Party (CPN) as his party was registered with the Election Commission in the same name earlier.
