The election of the 16th Central Committee counted the votes yesterday afternoon and the final turnout rate reached 56%. On the other hand, a total of 42 nomination forms for the Senate were received. As the number of candidates did not exceed the maximum number of people resolved by the Central Committee, all candidates for the Senate were elected automatically and no voting was required. The lists are as follows.
The Central Committee and Senate will hold their first meetings in the afternoon of Wednesday, April 7, at which time the Central Committee will elect its Standing Committee, and the Standing Committee will elect a new leadership; the Senate will elect the chairperson and vice-chairpersons. The new leadership will meet with the press after the meeting. The relevant arrangements will be notified separately.
