- Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist) (1998)
Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist), a splinter-group from the
Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist)formed on March 5 1998. Sahana Pradhanwas the chair of the party and Bam Dev Gautamthe general secretary. [ [http://www.nepalnews.com.np/archive/2001/october/arc278.htm Nepalnews.com (newsflash) Arc278) ] ] Within the CPN(UML) a power struggle had taken place after the death of Madan Bhandari. Gautam and Pradhan advocated a tactical alliance with the Rastriya Prajatantra Party, which the CPN(UML) general secretary Madhav Kumar Nepalopposed. [Parajulee, Ramjee P.. "The Democratic Transition in Nepal". Rowman & Littlefield, 2000. p. 289] Moreover, CPN(ML) opposed the Mahakaliriver treaty with India. CPN(ML) described the split in the following wordings in the manifesto:
:"CPN-ML was born as a result of revolt by revolutionary and patriotic force against national capitalist, and liquidationist policies and programmes of the CPN-UML. This was not the revolt for the sake of revolt; it was the revolt to restructure and re-organise the communist movement based on the principles of revolutionary Marxism."

CPN(ML) won over the majority of the party membership in the
Kathmandu Valleyand almost half of the parliamentary group of CPN(UML)Fact|date=February 2007. From September to December that year, CPN(ML) took part in the government led by G.P. Koirala.
In the 1999 parliamentary elections CPN(ML) got 6.4% of the votes nationwide, but failed to win a single seat. The division of the communists directly contributed to the electoral victory of the
Nepali Congress(which had less votes than CPN(ML) and CPN(UML) combined).
In January 2002 CPN(ML) formed a three-member team to negotiate re-unification with CPN(UML). The team was headed by
R.K. Mainali. [ [http://www.nepalnews.com.np/archive/2002/january/arc323.htm Nepalnews.com (newsflash) Arc321) ] ] On February 15, 2002CPN(ML) reunified with CPN(UML). But C.P. Mainali, an important party leader, refused to go along and reconstituted his own CPN(ML). [ [http://www.nepalnews.com.np/archive/2002/february/arc329.htm Nepalnews.com (newsflash) Arc329) ] ]
