Posted on 09/20/2010 4:09:57 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar
North Korea is expected to name new leadership at an historic meeting on September 28.
Analysts believe Jong-il's youngest son Kim Jong-un is likely to be given an official title at the Workers' Party conference.
That would pave the way for his eventual succession as leader.
Jong-il, who is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008, has reportedly accelerated succession plans.
The North's KCNA news agency said the conference would be held in Pyongyang "for electing its supreme leadership body", but provided no further details of the agenda.
The meeting had been due to start in early September. The report made no mention of the delay.
South Korea said it appeared the meeting was held up by "internal problems", probably related to flooding.
Media reports have also speculated Kim's health or disagreements over a reshuffle of the power structure could be responsible for the delay. Party meetings have been held around the country to elect delegates to conference, KCNA reported.

“South Korea said it appeared the meeting was held up by “internal problems”, probably related to flooding.”
They won’t know who got the job until the sound of gunfire from the party’s headquarters stops.
Thanks! This is getting more interesting by the day.
He has so many look a likes they could have been fooling us for years. It is all like our news... propaganda so Kim Jong could be dead or near death and they would not say.
Are Communist regimes supposed to have royalty?
Whatever happened to the dictum, “from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs”? Does the Kim Jong family just happen to have more abilities and more needs than anybody else in North Korea?
Most Precious Leader soon to be replaced by A Most Precious Leader. Same old/same old.
Meanwhile the people starve and continue to be bludgeoned into submission.
For our Communist......
This is shaping up to be a Fransisco Franco thing.
The new leader is Kim Il Dung? Meet the new boss same as the old boss!
HEY JJ I think I got preview on NK leadership
Oldest son Kim Jong-nam tried to visit Disneyland in Japan = disqualified to lead NK.
Middle son Kim Jong-chul is a bit too like a little girl = disqualified to lead NK.
Youngest son Kim Jong-un has diabetes, hypertension, fits of anger, drinks hard and is an introvert - Ladies and gentleman, I present the next leader of North Korea.
Hey Jet according to UK Telegraph going be next week
Thats about the sound of it.
Thanks Jet Jaguar.
BOy you are good LOL!
Even made OZ wires
Guess I was partially right. However, things will get interesting if/when he turns all power over to 'un'. It sounds like the youngest isn't highly thought of and open to a coup...Then again, Kim Jong-il seems to have kept on top of the military despite being a total nutter.
