March 14 (UPI) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un's younger sister made her first official appearance earlier this month.

Kim Yo-Jong accompanied her older brother to a polling station at Kim Il Sung University of Politics while he cast a vote for himself in the parliamentary elections.

Kim -- unsurprisingly -- won the election unanimously, with 100 percent turnout.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry spokesman told state media: "All its citizens of the DPRK took part in the election to consolidate as firm as a rock the people's power chosen by themselves, fully enjoying their rights as the genuine masters of the state and society, and voted for the candidates with loyalty and patriotism."

Kim was elected as the representative of Mount Paektu Constituency No. 111 in the Supreme People's Assembly. Mount Paektu is Korea's highest peak and allegedly the birthplace of Kim's deceased father and former Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-Il.
