North Korean 'Election' Goes Exactly as You'd Expect

By Curtis Kalin | March 10, 2014 | 2:11pm EDT
North Korea conducted an "election" Sunday in which Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un was "elected" with a whopping 100% of the vote.

Admittedly, it was a long, hard slog for Un, who had been dogged by charges throughout the "campaign" that he was actually a brutal dictator. Un also weathered a plethora of allegations that, beginning in 2011, he systematically murdered his opposition in a "purge."

Election Poster: 'Let's All Vote in Agreement'

Amazingly, North Korean "voters" were remarkably silent on these charges in public. However, the 99% voter turnout rate clearly sent a message that Un was to be undeterred in his first election since inheriting leadership from his father. His campaign prowess was so legendary that no other candidate even challenged him. Un's party poster read, "Let's all vote in agreement!" (and, apparently, they did) and was posted all over the country.

"This 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 him," the state-run Korean Central News Agency "reported".

Even Time Magazine raved that the North Korean electoral process is "A Sham Worth Studying".

The vote was also used to 'choose' 687 deputies for Parliament, who rarely meet because they have no actual power.
