North Koreans vote in parliamentary elections

State media urges citizens to give their "absolute support" to the ruling party

North Korea held nationwide elections to its rubber-stamp Supreme People’s Assembly (SPA) on Sunday, the country's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

The vote -- the second since Kim Jong Un took power -- sees North Koreans citizens elect deputies to all 687 seats in the 14th SPA for five year terms.
