Demotion of Kim Jong-un's sister

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (C, front) visits the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang on Jan. 12, 2021, together with the newly elected members of the 8th Party central leadership body, in this photo released by the North's official Korean Central News Agency the next day. The leader's younger sister, Kim Yo-jong (in white circle, 4th row), also visited the palace, where the embalmed bodies of the country's two former leaders -- Kim Jong-un's grandfather and the founder of the North Korean government Kim Il-sung and his father Kim Jong-il -- lie in state. Yo-jong has been demoted to vice department director of the ruling Workers Party's Central Committee from the committee's first vice department director and has not been listed as a member nor as an alternate member of the party's politburo.
