Dahal, who came into politics in the 1980s, became a Maoist central committee member in 1997.
He first entered Parliament in the reinstated House of Representatives after the 2006 People’s Movement.
In the first Constituent Assembly in 2008, he was elected from Chitwan-3.
On the other hand, Sharma, who is a former Banke district chairperson, was elected a lawmaker in 2022.
The ruling alliance holds a comfortable majority with 38 members in the 59-strong upper house, where one position remains vacant.
