According to analysts, the absence of contenders among competing candidates, elections in North Korea can be regarded as just a political process.

It allows the authorities to claim the mandate, while strengthening support for Jong-un’s leadership regime.

The 99.98 per cent voter turnout recorded this year, is 0.01 per cent higher than in 2015.

“Only those who are overseas to visit or work in waters, can not vote.

“However, aged voters and ill-health voters can vote via mobile ballot boxes,” KCNA news agency said.
