Communist Party of Nepal (Unified) (Nepali: नेपाल कम्युनिष्ट पार्टी (एकिकृत)) is a communist party in Nepal. The party was formed in 2007 through the merger of three groups:

The General Secretary of the party is Ram Singh Shris (Rajbir).[2] The party had two members in the interim legislature of Nepal, Pari Thapa and Navraj Subedi.

CA polls[edit]

The party presented its manifesto for the Constituent Assembly polls on March 10, 2008. The party proposes making Nepal into a federal republic with 11 states and 2 sub-states, based on ethnicity, language and geography. It proposes having a ceremonial president, and resting executive powers in the office of the Prime Minister. According to its manifesto, there would be a limit of two mandate periods for the Prime Ministership. Both Prime Minister and president would be elected by the parliament.[3]

The party won two seats through the Proportional Representation vote, but no seat in the First Past the Post system.[4][5]

Unification with Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)[edit]

The Communist Party of Nepal (Unified) (Nabaraj Subedi fraction) has formally merged with the Unified CPN (Maoist) on April 2010.

Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and CPN (Unified) leader Nabaraj Subedi signed a memo on the unification between the two parties at a programme in the capital Katmandhu on April 3, 2010.

According to leaders, they have agreed to settle ideological issues at the upcoming general convention of the Maoist party.

They said local level organizational matters would be settled by forming a taskforce. [6]
