This is really fun and it gives us an idea as to the fact that the people of North Korea do not really have a choice–even when it comes to elections.
How can there be 100% turn out at an election and Kim Joung Un winning all the votes? To think of it, who will have the ‘balls’ not to come out and vote for him, even if he is the only one on the ballot paper?
According to Yahoo;
With no one else on the ballot, state media reported Monday that supreme leader Kim Jong Un was not only elected to the highest legislative body in North Korea, he won with the unanimous approval of his district, which had 100 percent turnout.
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 — without a single dissenting ballot.
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.
