The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal filed by the chairman of the CPN-Maoist Centre, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, seeking a review of an earlier order that ended the merger of the CPN-UML and the CPN-Maoist Centre, restoring the parties to their pre-2018 status.
The appeal was dismissed today by a full bench consisting of Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana, justices Tej Bahadur KC and Prakash Kumar Dhungana.
On Tuesday, Dahal, accompanied by other party representatives, went to the court to file the appeal. His party had agreed to ask the court for a reversal earlier this week.
The UML and the Maoist Centre were resurrected on March 7 after the Supreme Court declared the 2018 unification between them unconstitutional.
