Communist Party of Nepal - Maoist(2014)
Chairman Netra Bikram Chand
Founded 2014
Ideology Marxism-Leninism-Maoism
Political position Far-left

Note: Not to be confused with the former Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) from 1996-2009, currently named Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M) from 2009 onwards, nor the new 2012 breakway faction of CPN-M, led by Kiran. Also syntax matters, this party officially uses no dashes and uses parenthesis, though even local media may get it wrong.

Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)(2014) officially abbreviated as CPN (M) but commonly mistaken in the media as CPN-M (Kiran's party), was formed in March 2014. Echoing the 2012 split of Kiran's faction going by the name CPN-M, Netra Bikram Chand claimed The Maoist revolt had grossly perverted by the time it arrived in Kathmandu from Rolpa. It is not possible to unite with the party that has strayed from the Maoist ideology.[1] and split his faction from the CPN-M. Since the new party does not have any seats in parliament, its lack of power, CPN (M) have resorted to enforcing banda whenever the elected government does not heed to their demands, echoing the tactics of its predecessors, Kiran's CPN-M and the original CPN (M) in its early days, but resorting to even more extreme measures -- using terrorist tactics and violence against ordinary citizens that defied the July 2015 strike, they have added to the misery of Nepali society and mostly count the innocent and poor as their victims, including those who have lost everything in the April 2015 Nepal earthquake.[2][3]
