The vote for the Supreme People's Assembly is the first in five years and the first under leader Kim Jong Un. The last elections were held in March 2009, when 687 deputies were elected to the assembly. It is the most powerful body under North Korea's constitution, but which in reality has little political power.
Instead of choosing who they support, voters are given the choice of a yes or no for the single candidate on their ballot. Virtually all choose yes.
i love how obvious the outcome of this election seems to westerners. i mean as an American i can't help but chuckle for a second or two.
but then i remember i live in the western world, and the fact that i can actually relate to BS elections like this.
I wonder what happens if they ever get enough voting no to see someone lose?
