Kim Jong Un’s little sister makes official debut

It's a family affair: Kim Yo-Jong made her first debut as a 'senior official' as her brother enjoyed a 100% poll victory

The younger sister of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un made her first debut as a “senior official” on Sunday, joining the third generation of the ruling Kim dynasty.

Kim Yo-Jong accompanied her brother to a polling station when North Korea held stage-managed elections to its rubber stamp parliament.

It was not her first appearance, Kim Yo-Jong, who is believed to be 26 years old, was seen at her father’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.

In her latest appearance, Kim 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.

Meanwhile, North Korea's state media confirmed on Monday a 100 percent, no-abstention poll victory for leader Kim Jong-Un in the parliamentary election.

Every single vote cast on Sunday in Kim's constituency was for the man who can now add MP to his many titles that include Supreme Commander of the armed forces and chairman of the powerful National Defence Commission.

"All the voters of the constituency took part in voting and 100 percent of them voted for Kim Jong-Un," the North's official KCNA news agency said.
