Meanwhile, A Job Opening At A Far-Eastern Autocracy May Soon Be Filled

Itar-Tass reports that the official protege to North Korea's maximum leader may soon be announced:

On Tuesday, a reliable diplomatic source in Pyongyang told Tass that a congress of the Korean Workers' Party may be called in North Korea before the end of the year and that a successor of the country's leader would be announced at the forum. According to the diplomat, one of Kim's three sons is likely to be the successor of the supreme power in North Korea. All of them have "approximately equal chances".
