KATHMANDU — The two communist partoes — CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre) — have formally announced their unification on Thursday becoming a new party called Nepal Communist Party (NCP), eight months after the two ruling parties made an initial agreement on a party unity.

The formal announcement of unification between CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center) to form Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has been made amid a press conference in the capital. The press conference was organised at City Hall in Kathmandu.
