Kim Jong-un's Aunt 'Loses Seat in Rubber-Stamp Parliament'
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's aunt and widow of executed eminence grise Jang Song-taek was probably not returned to North's rubber-stamp parliament, an intelligence official here said Thursday.
"It appears that Kim Kyong-hui either quarreled with Kim Jong-un or voluntarily stepped down," the official said.
The name Kim Kyong-hui was on a list of the 687 Supreme People's Assembly members who were picked at the weekend, but intelligence officials here believe that is another individual of the same name. The representative was elected in the Taepyong district of North Pyongan Province, and there is no reason why Kim's aunt would run in that remote part of the country.
During the last Supreme People's Assembly elections in 2009, there were two candidates called Kim Kyong-hui, and Kim's aunt was the one who ran in Pyongyang.
She has not been seen in public since a concert in September last year, months before her husband was executed. The government here believes she went to Russia last autumn for receive heart surgery and has been bedridden since her return.
Intelligence officials here believe the perennial ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam was not re-elected either, since the candidate of that name ran in the Unha district, a science research center near Pyongyang, and the president of the Presidium has no connection with science. A government official said, "We can't rule out that that was someone else with the same name."
But a Unification Ministry official said it is unlikely that Kim Yong-nam lost his position since he just met Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Sochi Winter Olympics and was spotted casting his vote last week."
“...voluntarily stepped down...”
Maybe she likes breathing.
It boggles the mind that evil like this can persist - generation after generation living in fear, poverty and starvation and choosing to remain slaves rather than stand up and fight the demon king.
“It boggles the mind that evil like this can persist “
It probably exists for one reason. China wants it to exist. China fears if the South took over they’d have a strong US ally on their border. They couldn’t keep the Chinese people from seeing how prosperous the neighbor had become. NK is a buffer state.
Every woman in this picture looks scared to death, especially the woman in the front.
If you keep killing off all the smart people in a country - you end up with North Korea.
I know NK will be exceptionally difficult, but the Lord helps those that help themselves. They have the power, they either don’t realize it or too fearful of the freedom process or like the situation.
I understand that this is a big deal in NK, because before this the aunt was seen as,along with the late uncle, one of the de facto co-regents of the NK Despotate.
So it seems like the Un has found the power base to shake them off at last, or more likely, that some other group has won a power struggle.
Actually I think she somewhere in some North Korea palace I think Chia Chub gave auntie choice
Retired “to palace of your choice” or force firing squard that how ancient Emperors deal with meddling with Mothers Sisters and Aunts
