North Korea Administration

North Korea is dominated by the communist party, the Korean Workers' Party, which has three million members (16 percent of the population) and runs in parallel with government organs at all levels.
The state organisation is controlled by the Central People's Committee, consisting of a president, (the head of state) a prime minister and about 15 others which is elected by the 650 member Supreme People's Assembly, elected in turn by universal suffrage.
The Central People's Committee appoints and directs an Administration Council, with local government vested in nine provincial and four municipal elected People's Assemblies. Government at all levels is dominated by the Korean Workers' Party.
Many senior Party members also hold important positions within the state administration. It is often difficult to identify which organs actually hold the power. The specific individuals who are most significant in the power structure can be hard to ascertain.
