Research and Analysis on the DPRK Leadership
From the home office in Nutley, New Jersey. . .
A more detailed list of the rostrum order from the meeting held for the 15th anniversary of Kim Jong Il’s election as Korean Workers’ Party [KWP] General Secretary is available in PDF.
A more informal hierarchy of the DPRK’s national security community accompanied Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) on his visit to Ku’msusan Memorial Palace of the Sun on 10 October 2012, the official 67th anniversary of the foundation of the party. Some media reporting found it ironic that KJU’s reported coterie at Ku’msusan consisted entirely of senior security and military officials. However, ten (10) of these 17 officials are Members or Alternate (candidate) Members of the KWP Political Bureau, 12 are on the Party Central Military Commission and three (3) are members of the KWP Secretariat.
