WPK—Invincible Guiding Force
Chairman Kim Jong Il started working at the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea in June 1964. Under his nearly-half-a-century-long leadership, the WPK has developed into an invincible revolutionary party. Its history adorned with victory and glory is shining more brilliantly thanks to Kim Jong Il who performed immortal exploits in its building and Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un who is successfully carrying forward his cause.

Kim Jong Il strengthened and developed the WPK into a revolutionary party of a Juche type in which the unitary character of the leader’s ideology and leadership are securely guaranteed.

With a plan to develop the WPK into the party of President Kim Il Sung, he conducted energetic ideological and theoretical activities to formulate the President’s revolutionary ideology as Kimilsungism, an integral system of the idea, theory and method of Juche, and further enriched it as required by the times and the developing revolution. He ensured that all problems arising in Party building and activities were solved in line with the President’s plan and intention and energetically led the effort to embody the requirements of the Juche idea in the revolution and construction to the letter, with the result that the unity in ideology and purpose and organizational solidarity of the Party ranks were consolidated rock-solid.

Kim Jong Il developed the WPK into a powerful political General Staff in implementing the socialist cause.

With an unshakeable will to carry forward the socialist cause of Juche pioneered by the President down through the generations, he clarified the scientific accuracy and veracity of socialism and made sure that the principle of collectivism, the original features of socialism and the Juche character and national identity were strictly maintained in the revolution and construction. Under his leadership the WPK could steer the cause of socialism along the road of victory even in the face of the imperialists’ sanctions and blockade.

Kim Jong Il ensured that the WPK developed into a motherly party that forms an integral whole with the people and serves them.

He always regarded the people as his mentors and mapped out the Party’s lines and policies in reflection of their opinions and demands. His absolute trust in and ardent love for them found expression in his people-bound train by which he made on-site guidance trips to different parts of the country throughout his life and in the people-oriented policies which have been pursued invariably even in the period of the Arduous March when the country was undergoing difficulties. Regarding it as an important principle for Party building and activities to form a harmonious whole of the Party and the people, he led the WPK to give top and absolute priority to their demands and interests with firm belief in their strength. Accordingly, the Korean people have trusted and followed the WPK, regarding it as their closest motherly party, and entrusted their all entirely to it.

Kim Jong Un ensures that the WPK, guided by Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, conducts its building and activities in the same way as Kim Jong Il did, and staunchly safeguards and adds eternal brilliance to his ideas and exploits. Great changes are taking place in the work style and attitude of the WPK under his leadership for further strengthening and developing it into a powerful vanguard force of the Juche revolution. The Seventh Congress of the WPK, the First Conference of Chairpersons of the WPK Primary Committees and other Party-wide conferences held under his guidance marked a historic milestone in building up the WPK into the party of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

He is brilliantly carrying forward the Chairman’s revolutionary ideas and mode and leading the service personnel and people to victory, foiling the imperialists’ sanctions and blockades with his matchless courage and guts. The DPRK has brought about events of national significance which fully demonstrated its invincible might, achieved a miraculous victory of building beautiful socialist villages in the flood-stricken areas and created legendary stories of building one magnificent street after another every year. Credit for these remarkable successes must go to the wise leadership of the WPK.

Kim Jong Un invariably embodies the idea of “The people are my God” cherished by the Chairman as his motto throughout his life. The WPK regards making selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people as the mode of its existence and its revolutionary climate and administers benevolent politics based on affection for and trust in them. Under its leadership the people-first principle is being thoroughly applied in all fields of Party work, state activities and social life.

The immortal exploits Kim Jong Il performed for Party building will shine forever along with the invincible might of the WPK which always emerges victorious, enjoying the absolute support and trust of all the Korean people.
