THE younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has made an official debut of sorts, consolidating the grip on power of the ruling Kim dynasty‘s third generation.

Kim Yo-Jong, believed to be 26, accompanied her elder brother to a polling station on Sunday when North Korea held stage-managed elections to its rubber stamp parliament.

It was not her first appearance. She was shown on state television in 2011, tearfully standing next to Kim Jong-Un as they attended the funeral of their father and former ruler Kim Jong-Il.

Since then she has occasionally been seen accompanying her brother on his “field guidance trips‘‘.

Sunday‘s outing was different as she was, for the first time, officially listed by her name and as a “senior official‘‘ attending the voting function along with several top party and army luminaries.

State TV footage showed Kim in a black skirt suit, walking closely behind her brother and casting her vote into a ballot box.

Her precise position was not detailed, but she is believed to be the events director in Kim Jong-Un‘s Secretariat Office.

North Korea‘s state media confirmed today what was never in doubt — a 100 per cent, no-abstention poll victory for leader Kim Jong-Un in the country‘s stage-managed parliamentary election.

Every single vote cast on Sunday in Kim‘s constituency was for the man who can now add MP to his many titles that include Supreme Commander of the armed forces and chairman of the powerful National Defence Commission.

“All the voters of the constituency took part in voting and 100 per cent of them voted for Kim Jong-Un,‘‘ the North‘s official KCNA news agency said.

“This is an expression of ... people‘s absolute support and profound trust in supreme leader Kim Jong-Un as they single-mindedly remain loyal to him, holding him in high esteem,‘‘ it said.

Sunday‘s ballot was an election in name only.

Each of the nearly 700 constituencies had only one state-sanctioned candidate, ensuring a foregone conclusion in every case.

Voting was mandatory and state media said all registered voters across the country — except for those based overseas — took part.

Before the election appearance Kim Yo-Jong was last seen on state TV in 2012 riding a white horse — a common propaganda symbol associated with the Kim family — with her aunt, Kim Kyong-Hui.

As Kim Jong-Il‘s sister, Kim Kyong-Hui was an enormously powerful and influential figure who was given the rank of a four-star general.

Together with her husband, Jang Song-Thaek, she was seen as the power behind Kim Jong-Un‘s throne, until the young leader had Jang purged and executed last year.

Ahn Chan-Il, head of Seoul-based World Institute for North Korea Studies, said Kim Yo-Jong was being groomed to play the same supporting role as her aunt.

“Kim Jong-Un and Kim Yo-Jong will work in a similar way as their father and Kim Kyong-Hui did in securing the future of the Kim dynasty,‘‘ Ahn said.

“And Kim Kyong-Hui will eventually leave official life as part of the power shift within the family,‘‘ he said.

Kim Kyong-Hui, 67, has barely been seen in recent years, with reports that she was seriously ill and had sought hospital treatment overseas.

The Kim family has ruled the country for more than six decades with an iron first wrapped in a pervasive personality cult.

What a freak! Totally bangs his sister.

Pfft, when he shoots more than 11 hole in ones in a round then I'll care.

Only 100%? poor! I expect at least 103 or 104 percent.

That's charisma for you, some of us have it and some don't.

What a great guy. Denis Napthine could learn a lot from him. All those complaints coming from Morwell? There wouldn't be any under Kim's rule. They'd be grateful for the smog. 

Proves he's not a dictator.

This entire north Korea period has to be one of the more bizarre chapters in human history. There is a ludicrous element to it all that jars savagely with the reality of the existence allowed those who live it.

There you have it folks, democracy works.

Proves he's not a dictator.

Exactly, he's just a naughty, naughty boy.

Least the votes won't disappear.


Potential dissident voters might though....
