The Workers’ Party of Korea regards it as the mode of its existence and a revolutionary climate to make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people.
Give top and absolute priority to the people’s interests and comfort!
This is the starting point of thinking and activities of General Secretary Kim Jong Un of the WPK.
He, with a noble view on people, provided important guidelines for developing the WPK into a genuine motherly party in his works, including “Let Us Brilliantly Accomplish the Revolutionary Cause of Juche, Holding Kim Jong Il in High Esteem as the Eternal General Secretary of Our Party” on April 6, 2012 and “Making Selfless, Devoted Efforts for the Good of the People is the Mode of Existence and Source of Invincible Might of the Workers’ Party of Korea” on October 10, 2015.
He put forward the slogan “Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!” and ensured that the WPK thoroughly applied the people-first principle in its work. During his inspection trips, he frequently said: Do people like it? We should ensure the people’s comfort. We have nothing to spare for the good of the people. We should never rest content with doing things for the people.
At a result, a number of structures for the people’s wellbeing, including Ryugyong Health Complex, Munsu Water Park, Masikryong Ski Resort, Jungphyong Vegetable Greenhouse Farm and Yangdok Hot Spring Resort, mushroomed in different parts of the country.
The respected General Secretary ensured that officials conduct work with the masses with warm affection for and trust in them as appropriate for its nature as a motherly party. He said that, no matter what a serious mistake he may make, and even though we find in him 99 per cent of demerits and only one per cent of merit or conscience, we should value his conscience and trust him, and that the biggest wealth of the WPK is the people’s trust. His benevolent affection for the people touched their heartstrings.
That is why the Korean people call the WPK the motherly party and entrust their destiny and future entirely to it and faithfully follow it.
A “Servant” Party
It is the respected General Secretary’s ideology, ideal and unshakable will on party building that the WPK should spare no pains to become a “servant” party devoting for the sake of people.
He, who swore to become a true servant who is loyal to the people and supports them faithfully with a pure conscience, would request officials to devote their heart and soul for them. Whenever he takes the opportunity and wherever he goes, he says that officials should become true servants of the people and make tireless efforts to provide them with happy and affluent living conditions. All the parts of the country bear the imprints of his devoted service for the people’s wellbeing.
He inspected the Pyongyang Trolley Bus Factory several times a year and oversaw the trial run of a prototype trolley bus. He got on a chairlift on a trial run to climb up the peak of a ski ground, over 1 360 m above sea level, and personally drove his car to Taechong-ri in Unpha County, North Hwanghae Province to acquaint himself with a detailed situation of the flood-stricken area.
With a resolve to pluck a star from the heavens or grow flowers even on a rock for the people’s wellbeing, he advanced a slogan “Let the whole Party make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the great people!” at the 7th Congress of the WPK in May 2016, and shouted a slogan “Long live our great people!” in his speech delivered at the military parade celebrating the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK in October 2020.
Last year, he presided over ten-odd major meetings of the Party Central Committee to discuss in an in-depth way the problems of defending the people’s life and security. And the State took measures to clear away the damage caused by natural disasters that hit several parts of the country, and provide the residents in the flood-stricken areas with better houses. In those days, an unusual story was heard that officials of a county Party committee yielded their offices to the flood victims and they themselves worked in makeshift tents.
Under the leadership of the respected General Secretary, the WPK is making vigorous efforts to bring happiness to the people.
