ABSTRACT
The article reports that steps have been taken by North Korean ruler Kim Jong-Il to designate Kim Jong-Un, his youngest son to continue the communist country's dynasty by naming him to a post at the National Defense Commission (NDC). Jong-Un was named an "instructor" at the NDC days before the crucial parliamentary session in April 2009.
