North Korea to hold local elections on July 21, state media says

DPRK citizens to elect members of provincial, city, and county people's assemblies

North Korea will hold elections to positions in the country's provincial, city, and county people's assemblies on July 21, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Tuesday.

The vote, which comes just a few months after the DPRK held a nationwide vote to its rubber-stamp Supreme People's Assembly (SPA) in February, will see North Koreans elect mayors, governors, and other local officials.
