DPRK Praised by Brazilian Organization
Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- An article titled "The most popular and democratic election system" was posted on internet website on February 19 by the Brazilian Committee for Solidarity with the DPRK.

The article said:

Coming March 9 will witness the election of deputies to the 13th Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK.

All citizens take part in the election as the DPRK has the best popular and democratic election system.

The advantages of the Korean style election system find a vivid manifestation among other things in the principle governing the election.

Election is held in the DPRK through a universal, equal and direct suffrage by secret ballot.

It is stipulated in the constitution of the DPRK that every citizen at the age of 17 and above shall have the right to elect and to be elected, irrespective of sex, nationality, occupation, residence period, assets and the level of education, party affiliation, political view and religious faith.

Its advantages also lie in that the will and wishes of the popular masses are fully met through the organization of election and its procedures and best conveniences are provided for them.

The election system in the DPRK is in full line with the essential character of the revolutionary power as it is organized by the people themselves and struggles for protecting their interests and freedom and peace.
