Kim Jong-un has been elected to North Korea Supreme People’s Assembly with an unanimous vote from his district, state media say.

Meanwhile, state media on Sunday identified a woman accompanying Kim Jong-un to a polling station.

Kim Yo-jong, who state media described as a “senior official”, is thought to be the younger sister of Kim Jong-un.

Various reports say Kim Jong-un’s sister may be 26 or 27 years old.

It was not her first appearance, Kim Yo-jong, who is believed to be 26 years old, was seen at her father Kim Jong-il’s televised funeral in 2011, and occasionally accompanying her brother on his “field guidance trips.”

In 2012, state TV showed Kim Yo-jong with her aunt, Kim Kyong-hui, riding a white horse, the representation of a symbol associated with the Kim family, AFP says.

In her latest appearance, Kim Yo-jong was seen in a black skirt suit, closely walking behind her brother, and casting her vote.

She is believed to be the events director in Kim Jong-un’s Secretariat office, but her price position was never detailed.


The Kim family has ruled the country for over six decades.
