For the first time ever, North Korean state media has reported on the results of local elections held in South Korea.
The Korean Central News Agency reported Saturday, that South Korea's progressive main opposition party scored major wins on Wednesday in the Seoul mayoral race, and in the central Chungcheong-do provinces, which have traditionally been considered moderately conservative areas.
The report added the conservative ruling Saenuri Party only narrowly won in Incheon and Gyeonggi-do Province, and just hung onto power in the Gyeongsang-do provinces, both traditional strongholds for the party.
Pyongyang's state-media also reported that South Korean voters mostly chose education chiefs with progressive political persuasions during the elections.
