Kim Jong Un was elected to North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly – the highest legislative body in North Korea – in an election that had a 100 percent turnout. Kim Jong Un received every vote according to a North Korea state media’s report on Monday which was carried by Washington Post on Monday as well.

The election was the first election held in the country since Kim Jong II passed away in 2011, and the turnout of voters in the election was higher than the country’s traditional 99 percent participation of voters.

The Korean Central News Agency, a state-run media facility, asserted that the election’s turnout and results is an expression of all the service personnel and people’s absolute support and profound trust in supreme leader Kim Jong Un as they single-mindedly remain loyal to their leader.

The incredibly high turnout of voters indicates that even the elderly, infirm, and North Koreans who live abroad voted for him. While there is only one candidate to choose from in each district, one can chose “no” for a candidate; however, everyone usually votes “yes.”
