North Korea will open its first Supreme People's Assembly meeting under the leadership of Kim Jong-un on this Wednesday.
The country's highest legislative body will appoint officials for government posts and deliberate on this year's budget plan.
The assembly could reveal some major personnel or policy changes following the purge of Kim Jong-un's close aides last year, including his uncle Jang Song-thaek once the second most powerful man in the country.
There's also on focus on what message Pyongyang will send out amid the recent escalation of tensions between South Korea and the U.S.
A total of 6-hundred-87 officials were 'elected' last month during the North's rubber-stamp parliamentary elections.
