SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea's ruling communist party members gathered in Pyongyang ahead of their largest political conference in 30 years, state media reported Monday, amid predictions that leader Kim Jong Il would use the meeting to give a key ruling party position to one of his sons.

North Korea has said it will hold a rare Workers' Party conference early this month to elect new party leaders, sparking speculation that the event would be linked to Kim's moves to groom his third and youngest son — Kim Jong Un — as his successor. No exact date for the meeting has been provided.
