Timing of North Korean Plenary Meeting suggests break from precedence

Plenum set to be held before end of December and Kim Jong Un's New Year Address on January 1

The timing of North Korea's forthcoming and unusually-timed Plenary Meeting, which is scheduled to take place "in the last 10 days" of December, appears to have broken from precedence under Kim Jong Un's leadership.

With the North hosting an expanded meeting of the Central Military Commission (CMC) according to December 22 reports in the Rodong Sinmun, it was anticipated by analysts that the Plenary Meeting or plenum would take place soon after.
