Kim Jong Il, eternal General Secretary of the WPK
WPK into ever-victorious one
It has been seventeen years since Chairman Kim Jong Il was elected General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea on October 8, 1997.
The election of Kim Jong Il as general secretary of the WPK marked a political event of particular significance in the development of the WPK and the Korean revolution and a great auspicious event of the nation as it powerfully demonstrated the might of harmonious whole between the leader and the people.
Kim Jong Il developed the WPK to be an organizer and guide of all victories of the Korean people and steered the revolution and construction along the road of one victory after another with his outstanding idea and tested leadership for over half a century, performing immortal exploits on behalf of the country and its people, the times and history.
Kim Jong Il built up the whole party into the vanguard ranks of the Songun revolution which breathe and act, guided by the idea and intention of the leader, and made sure that the party strengthened the blood ties with the masses and looked after the destiny of the people in a responsible manner, thereby enabling the party to take on the perfect looks of the party of President Kim Il Sung.
It was the distinguished feat performed by Kim Jong Il in the party building that he led the WPK to consistently adhere to the revolutionary principles.
Kim Jong Il led the WPK to steadfastly advance along the road of socialism without the slightest vacillation late in the last century when the DPRK faced the worst trial.
He formulated the unique Songun politics as a main political mode under socialism and thoroughly embodied it, protecting the sovereignty and dignity of the country and socialism and making a great contribution to the global peace and security.
The WPK is a revolutionary party firmly based on the leader's ideological system and leadership system, a mother party serving the people after forming harmonious whole with them and an invincible party having a strong political and military groundwork. This is the true picture of the WPK that has grown strong under his leadership.
His idea and cause of the Juche-oriented party building have been carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un at a new higher level.
Supreme leader Kim Jong Un has held Kim Jong Il in high esteem as eternal general secretary of the WPK and developed it into the glorious Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il's party.
Kim Jong Un formulated Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism as the eternal guiding idea for the party and revolution through his brilliant ideological and theoretical activities and proclaimed the modeling of the whole society on it as the supreme program of the party. This is the great achievement that provides a sure guarantee for the development of the WPK and the final accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche.
The history of the WPK is marked by a glorious path along which the party has developed into an ever-victorious revolutionary one upholding the banner of the Juche idea under the leadership of the great leaders, and a sacred chronicle in which it led the army and people of the DPRK to victory through the creation of epoch-making changes and miracles.
A turn was made in the efforts to build an economic power and improve the people's living standard and a new history of building a highly civilized socialist country was ushered in under the leadership of the party.
Immensely rosy is the future of the Korean revolution as it is dynamically advancing, flying the flag of the Juche-oriented party led by Kim Jong Un generation after generation, holding Kim Jong Il in high esteem as eternal general secretary of the WPK.
