Milestones in history of WPK
In the new century of the Juche era, the Workers’ Party of Korea held important meetings geared to strengthening and developing itself into an invincible party that guides the revolutionary cause of Juche and a genuine motherly party that makes selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people.
The Fourth Conference of the WPK held in April 2012 adopted a decision to uphold Chairman Kim Jong Il as the eternal General Secretary of the WPK and elected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un to the top post of the Party.
With the meeting as a momentum, the WPK could strengthen the steadfastness of the centre of leadership and unity and provide a powerful political guarantee for the victorious advance of Kim Il Sung’s and Kim Jong Il’s Korea in the new century.
The Fourth Conference of Cell Secretaries and the Fifth Conference of Cell Chairpersons of the WPK held in 2013 and 2017 were meaningful occasions for bringing about a great turn in Party building and socialist construction in the new era of the Juche revolution under the banner of great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
The Seventh Congress of the WPK held in Pyongyang in May 2016 put it forward as the general task for Party building to develop it into the party of the leader, and discussed the matters of importance in strengthening the Party such as applying the people-first principle thoroughly in all aspects of its work and improving its leadership role steadily in the revolutionary struggle and construction work and set forth tasks to be tackled to this end. The congress elected Kim Jong Un Chairman of the WPK.
The First Conference of Chairpersons of the Primary Committees of WPK marked another significant milestone in further strengthening the Party into the great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist party and stepping up the building of a thriving country by greatly enhancing the militant functions and role of primary Party organizations.
The Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh WPK Central Committee held in December 2019 discussed the matters of strengthening the Party and enhancing its leadership role significantly and further strengthening the Party organizationally and ideologically as required by the times and developing revolution.
The enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee held in February 2020 served as an important occasion in firmly maintaining the WPK’s original feature of taking full responsibility for the destiny of the people and in thoroughly applying the people-first principle to Party activities.
The Korean people are out to greet with high political enthusiasm and labour feats the historic event which would mark another turning point in the building of a powerful socialist country and strengthening of the Party.
