Some not-so-shocking news from the Korean peninsula courtesy of none other than Al Jazeera: It appears that the results are in from Sunday's national elections in North Korea and that Kim Jong-il has won re-election with, you guessed it, 100 percent of the votes.
After winning 100 percent of the votes, Kim Jong Il was elected Deputy to the 12th Supreme People’s Assembly of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), according to an official announcement on March 9.
As scheduled, the first session of the new Supreme People’s Army will be held in early April and will re-elect Kim Jong Il as chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission.
The DPRK’s law regulates that there can be only one candidate in each electoral district. Kim Jong Il was the candidate for Constituency No. 333 and won the support of all the voters there.
