It is 51 years since the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL took the baton of leading the work of building the Workers Party of Korea , the ruling party of People’s Korea.
The great leader comrade KIM JONG Il, a true people's leader , started his work at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea on the 19th of June 1964. The WPK is the ruling party of socialist Korea, the supreme general staff of the Korean revolution . Comrade KIM JONG IL had joined the WPK on the 22 July 1961 .
The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL worked hard at the central committee of the WPK to defeat the internal enemies of People's Korea and to eliminate alien and impure ideologies such as capitalism and revisionism. He developed the ideology of the WPK, the Juche idea , in depth . He wrote the famous thesis "On the Juche Idea "
Working at the Central Committee of the WPK comrade Kim Jong Il guided all sectors of work ; the military, ideology, the economy and culture. He took a special interest in the film industry and wrote the immortal treatise "On the Art of the Cinema " .
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il worked day and night to guide the party . It was a well known fact that he would stay up all night working at the headquarters of Workers Party of Korea so that people referred to the "ever shining lamp at the party centre "
Comrade KIM JONG IL built up the WPK as the motherly party taking care of the people's lives. Korean people benefit from free education, free health care,l ow cost or free housing and abolition of taxation.
When socialism was frustrated in some countries the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL made sure that the WPK held high the red flag of socialism .He wrote a number of very important works such as “SOCIALISM IS A SCIENCE “ . Very soon it will be the 20th anniversary of another very important work “GIVING PRIORITY TO IDEOLOGICAL WORK IS ESSENTIAL FOR ACCOMPLISHING SOCIALISM” . This work strongly stresses the role of ideology in socialist construction. As the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL says “The most serious lesson of the collapse of socialism in several countries is that the corruption of socialism begins with ideological corruption, and that a break-down on the ideological front results in the crumbling of all socialism’s fronts and ends in the total ruin of socialism.” I think is very appropriate and it is something that should always be borne in mind.
The decades of leadership and guidance to the WPK given by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il had been decades of victory and glory in which the socialist citadel of People's Korea was consolidated. We salute the achievements made in guiding the WPK by eternal general secretary great comrade Kim Jong Il.
Today the cause of Juche party building is carried forward by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the First Secretary of the WPK and successor to the cause of Juche.
