The newly elected North Korean parliament will convene on April 9, just after the country's planned satellite launch, which Pyongyang has said will take place some time between April 4 to April 8, the Korean Central News Agency said on Friday. Leader Kim Jong Il was unanimously re-elected to a legislative seat in a March 8 election. North Korea's parliament meets only a few times a year to pass bills vetted by the ruling Workers' Party of Korea, which Kim heads.
