North Korean leader Kim Jong-un voted in Pyongyang in elections to approve a new national legislature. The vote for the Supreme People’s Assembly is the first in five years and the first under Kim Jong-un rule. It is the most powerful body under North Korea’s constitution, but 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. Voting in authoritarian North Korea is considered to be obligatory.
