North Korea's Kim Jong-Un Unanimously Elected To Assembly
North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un was elected unanimously to the highest legislative body, state media reported on Monday.
There was no one else on the ballot and the voter turnout in his district was 100%
North Koreans went to the polls on Sunday to approve the new roster of deputies for the supreme people’s assembly, the country’s legislature. The vote, more a political ritual than an election by Western standards, is generally held once every five years.
Though results for the other seats in the assembly had not yet been announced, North Korea’s media quickly reported Kim had won in his district located on the symbolic Mount Paekdu with a unanimous vote.
In the previous elections, 687 deputies were chosen. This is first time the election had been held since Kim inherited power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in 2011.
