Kathmandu, 1 April (2021) - The Supreme Court refused to allow any hearing on the review of the Court's decision to nullify Nepal Communist Party (NCP) that was formed with the merger of CPN (UML) and CPN (Maoist Centre).

The full bench of Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana and Justices Tej Bahadur KC and Prakash Kumar Dhungana refuted the review petition submitted by Pushpa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda".

The top court had nullified the registration of NCP on 7 March and put both the CPN (UML) and CPN (Maoist Centre) to status quo ante.

Prachanda had submitted a review petition against that decision on Tuesday.
