The authorities of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have not announced a fixed date for a major conference of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea (WPK) that had been scheduled for early September.

The DPRK media have recently opened volumes that covered reports about the Korean people in different parts of the country speeding up the economic construction to salute the WPK conference.

The volume stories also urged the leading cadres and the general public to welcome the opening of the WPK meeting with great enthusiasm for politics and excellent work achievements.

As the major conference is looming, Pyongyang still remains calm and orderly as ever.

Students were practicing group callisthenics at grand squares in the capital. Female sanitation workers were cleaning lawns and curbs along the street. The sea-blue-colored banners of the 12th Pyongyang International Film Festival were fluttering in conspicuous places.

The Political bureau of the WPK's Central Committee announced on June 23 that the party would hold a delegate conference in early September

to make major decisions on high-level appointments.

According to the Charter of the WPK, the Central Committee of the party can hold a delegate conference between two national congresses.

The conference of the WPK can discuss and decide urgent issues on routes, policy and tactics of the party, as well as dismiss or elect members, alternate members, and associate alternate members.

The WPK held delegate conferences in 1958 and 1966 respectively.
