North Koreans vote in 'rubber-stamp' election

Voters head to polls in parliamentary election where each district has one candidate to choose from.

    North Koreans have gone to polling stations to elect a new parliament.

    The vote for the Supreme People's Assembly last took place in 2009 and is the first under leader Kim Jong-un.

    But with only one candidate running for each district, the vote appears to be little more than a rubber-stamp process.
