PYONGYANG, June 9. /TASS/. A parliamentary session is due in Pyongyang on June 29, the Korean Central News Agency reported on Thursday, referring to a decree of the Supreme People’s Assembly.
The agenda was not specified. North Korea’s unicameral legislature consists of 687 parliamentarians. As a rule, they convene in the North Korean capital twice a year to approve a package of major bills as well as personnel appointments. In between the session, the legislative power is exercised by the Supreme People’s Assembly presidium.
