Let Maoist Rule for few years in Nepal alone!

The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (Nepali: एकीकृत नेपाल कम्युनिष्ट पार्टी (माओवादी)) is a political party in Nepal, founded in 1994 and currently led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal, commonly known as Prachanda. Following massive popular demonstrations and a prolonged "People's War" against the monarchy, the CPN(M) became the ruling party during the Nepalese Constituent Assembly election, 2008. The CPN(M) lead a coalition government until May 4, 2009 when Prachanda resigned over a conflict with the Nepalese President, Ram Baran Yadav, regarding Prachanda's decision to sac the head of the Nepalse army, Rookmangud Katawal.[1]

The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M) was previously the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) until it formally unified with the Communist Party of Nepal (Unity Centre-Masal) in January, 2009 resulting in its full, current name: the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).[2]
