The Electoral system of North Korea

Only one candidate appears on each ballot. Elections are ostensibly conducted by secret ballot, and a voter may cross off the candidate's name to vote against him/her but must do so by crossing out the name without secrecy. Voting is mandatory and turnout is habitually near 100%.

Members of the Supreme People's Assembly are elected to five-year terms and meet for SPA sessions up to ten days per year. The Supreme People's Assembly elects a standing committee known as the Presidium, which exercises legislative functions when the Assembly is not in session. It also elects the Chairman of the National Defence Commission, the country's chief executive, and the Premier.
