Elections for deputies to provincial (municipality), city (district) and county people's assemblies are scheduled to take place in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on July 19.
Election committees at all levels were already organized and have launched their work.
The election system in the DPRK is most popular and democratic.
First of all, its superiority lies in the fact that the system firmly ensures the politico-ideological cohesion of the state and society. It guarantees genuine political freedom and rights to all people.
So, all eligible voters take active part in elections.
Its advantage also finds itself in the fact that every citizen is allowed to take part in elections on an equal footing.
Citizens aged over 17 can vote or be voted, irrespective of sex, nationality, job, property, standards of education, political view and religious belief. Elections are held through a universal, equal and direct suffrage by secret ballot and those voters, unable to go to polling stations for sickness or old age, are allowed to cast their ballots into mobile boxes.
And the superiority of the election system is expressed in the fact that those devotedly working for the interests of the popular masses are elected for deputies to the organs of state power at all levels.
Through the forthcoming elections, the Korean people will display again the might of their unbreakable unity around the supreme leader and the invincibility of Korean-style socialism.Kim Chong I
