NORTH KOREA LEADER KIM JONG-UN GETS ANOTHER NEW ‘TOP POST’

NORTH-KOREA

According to the Telegraph newspaper, North Korea has created a new supreme governing commission with leader Kim Jong-un as its chairman, underlining the 33-year-old’s absolute control over every aspect of state policy in the isolated, nuclear-armed nation.

The country’s legislative body, the Supreme People’s Assembly (SPA), unanimously voted Mr Kim as head of the State Affairs Commission on Wednesday, the North’s official KCNA news agency said.

The new agency replaces the National Defence Commission as the country’s highest branch of government and supreme policymaking organisation.

The newspaper added that nominating Mr Kim for the post, SPA president Kim Yong-nam said it was the “unshakable faith and unswerving will of all service personnel and people of the country to uphold Kim Jong-un … at the top post of the DPRK”.
