Communist monarchy

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's son and handpicked heir has been elected to parliament but he will at best become a figurehead under a military-led collective leadership, news reports said on Tuesday quoting a source.

Kim Jong-un will be the third generation of his family to occupy the "throne" of North Korea.

It is ironic that most Communist "peoples dictatorships" eventually devolve into hereditary monarchies.
