At a special meeting of North Korea's parliament on Monday, leader Kim Jong Il, at center in an image released by North Korea's official news agency, named a longtime family confidant and a brother-in-law to top posts.

 

SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Il shook up his country's leadership ranks Monday, a move that appeared part of a broad strategy to consolidate his power before he passes control to his son.

 

North Korea's official media said Monday that Mr. Kim installed his brother-in-law to a role considered the country's second-most-powerful. He also named a longtime family confidant to what is in effect the No. 3 position, the premiership.

That represents North Korea's highest-level leadership shuffle since the beginning of this year, a period in which 11 prominent members of the regime have died, been replaced or been shuffled out of view, according to a count by the website NK Leadership Watch.
