Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist) is a political party in Nepal formed by C.P. Mainali when the CPN(ML) reunified with Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist). Mainali had refused to go along with the merger.

CPN(ML) is a member of the United Left Front and participated in the 2006 Loktantra Andolan.

Ahead of the 2008 Constituent Assembly election, the party presented a closed proportional representation list with 168 candidates, headed by C.P. Mainali.[1] The party presented 116 candidates for the First Past the Post seats.[2] It won eight seats in the election, all of them through proportional representation, with about 1.33% of the vote.

On August 6, 2010 CPN(ML) suffered another split regarding the candidate to be chosen in upcoming Prime Ministerial election. The split was led by former minister Jagat Bahadur Bogati and it included four CA members. The new party was named CPN-ML(Samajwadi).[3]
