DPRK’s First Constitution

It happened when the first constitution was being prepared after Korea`s liberation.

President Kim Il Sung suggested holding a nationwide discussion in order to fully reflect the will of the people in the draft constitution. 

At the talks with some officials of a province in February Juche 37(1948), he told them to go deep among working people and widely spread a provisional draft constitution before awakening them and encouraging them to present helpful opinions about it.

The all-people discussion was held for 70-odd days under his wise guidance to make the constitution encapsulate the aspirations of the people. In the period, over 58 000 resolutions, proposals and letters of thanks supporting the draft constitution came from across the country.

This is how the first constitution of the DPRK, most popular, fair and vital, was drawn up.
