North Korea Assembly Vote Set For March, To Consolidate Kim’s Power
North Koreans will hold elections for the country’s rubber stamp parliament in March, the first such polls under Kim Jong Un’s leadership, which are set to further consolidate his power after the purge of his uncle. Kim’s uncle, Jang Song Thaek, was one of the most powerful figures in North Korea until his purge and execution just a few weeks ago. South Korean President Park Geun-hye has described recent events in North Korea as a “reign of terror. The reclusive North’s official media said on Wednesday that the election for its Supreme People’s Assembly would be held on March 9, without offering details.
