North Korea ‘Election’ Reports Perfect Turnout

North Korea reported perfect turnout in the first national election under dictator Kim Jong Un.

The sham election allows the state to conduct an unofficial census, as well as rubber-stamp state-chosen representatives for the national parliament, reports the Wall StreetJournal. Only one candidate appears on ballot papers in an election that features dance parties and music, and are intended as a celebration of patriotism.

Kim cast his vote for one of the almost 700 members of the Supreme People’s Assembly, North Korean media reported, which meets occasionally to project the illusion of support for the regime’s decisions.
