North Koreans vote for state's parliament

11 March 2019

North Korea on Sunday held parliamentary elections to pick deputies to the 14th Supreme People's Assembly for a new five-year term. According to North Korean Central Election Guidance Committee, all registered voters, except for those abroad, cast their ballots as of 6 p.m. on Sunday, KCNA said.

In 2014, the election results were announced two days after the voting day. The rubber-stamp parliament holds meetings once or twice a year to approve decisions on issues such as governing structures and budgets prepared by the state's powerful Workers' Party, whose members make up the vast majority of the assembly.
