Kim Jong Il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), was elected delegate to the Conference of Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) on Wednesday, DPRK media reported Friday.

The official Rodong Sinmun reported that delegates of the Korean People's Army (KPA) of the WPK, elected at different levels, held a meeting at the April 25 House of Culture on Wednesday. They discussed the issue of electing delegates to the national conference of the WPK.

Kim Jong Gak, first vice director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, proposed Kim Jong Il as a delegate. This suggestion was adopted with a unanimous approval. Other KPA delegates to the conference were also elected at the meeting.

The Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK said on June 23 that a conference of the WPK will be held in early September to elect its highest leading body "reflecting the new requirements of the WPK and the developing revolution," so that decisive changes will take place in the cause of revolution and a prosperous and powerful socialist nation will be built.

Meetings of the city (district) and county party delegates were held ahead of the conference of the WPK recently, the Rodong Sinmun reported on Wednesday.
