Pyongyang quickly has set the stage for the fourth Party Representatives Conference slated for 11 April. Though state media have not yet announced an agenda for the conference, it is likely that the regime will use the event to memorialize formally Kim Jong Il and appoint Kim Jong Un to a top party post. The tables below provide a baseline of state media coverage of the impending conference and its antecedents.
This analysis is based on a review of DPRK media sources covered by OSC. It relies on available data from the North Korean party daily for events that occurred in years preceding 1995. The dates for representatives elections and pre- and post-conference events refer to the first time the events were reported in central media.
