N. Korea to hold biggest party congress in decades

North Korea’s ruling party said Friday it will hold its biggest convention in decades next May. The Workers’ Party said in a dispatch carried by state media that it has decided to hold its 7th congress as the North is faced with “the heavy yet sacred task” of building a “thriving” nation. It didn’t elaborate on what it will discuss. Analyst Cheong Seong-chang of the private Sejong Institute in South Korea said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will likely use the congress to reshuffle party officials, bolster his grip and present major state policies.
