North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN delegated some of his powers to his closest aides, including his younger sister Kim Ye-Jung, to ” ease stress.” This is reported by the South Korean Agency “Yonhap” with reference to the announcement of the intelligence service of South Korea.
The national intelligence Agency (NIS) says that the head of North Korea will still “have absolute power”, but will gradually transfer his powers to his younger sister. “Chairman Kim Jong-UN still retains his absolute power, but some of it is gradually being transferred,” the Agency said. “Ye Jung is the de facto leader number two, but no successor has been chosen.”
According to NIS, Kim Ye-Jung has taken most of the power from her brother, but she is not the only one who shares power with him. Kim Jong-UN’s sister was given responsibility for the policy towards South Korea and the United States and other common issues. Pak Pong – ju, the Vice-Chairman of the state Affairs Commission, and the new Prime Minister, Kim Tok-hun, took control of the economic sector. The armed forces are responsible for choe Pu – il, Director of the party’s military Affairs Department, and Ri Pyong-chol, Deputy Chairman of the party’s Central military Committee, according to the intelligence service.
The Agency’s report also says that the change of power is partly aimed at ” relieving [Kim Jong-UN’s] stress from his rule,” as well as removing blame from him if the policy fails.
In April 2020, the leader of the DPRK disappeared from the media, after which there were rumors about the possible death or illness of the politician. Former North Korean Ambassador to London Tae Yong Ho, who fled to South Korea in 2016, said the North Korean leader could not stand up or walk normally on his own. There was information that he was allegedly in a “vegetative state”. In Russia, rumors about the death of Kim Jong-UN were denied. The US called the disappearance of the North Korean leader unusual and prepared for everything. In may, the North Korean leader appeared in public
