The ideas and theories advanced by the Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, including the ideas of preparing all the party members to be genuine Kimilsungists-Kimjongilists, true comrades and comrades-in-arms of our Party, making the party cells blood vessel between the broad masses and the party by applying the people-first principle and intensifying the combat against abuse and bureaucratic practices, serve as very important guidelines that should be adhered to in the party cell work, he said.
The distinguished leadership and undying feats of the Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, who increased the working efficiency of the basic party organizations including the party cells in every way and thus made them gain very signal victories one after another on all fronts of building a powerful socialist country, will shine long in the history of Juche-based party building, the reporter said, and continued:
The past five years after the 4th Conference of Cell Secretaries of the WPK were the fruitful years in which our Party had steadily advanced the socialist cause, fully demonstrating its might as the revolutionary party of Juche under the wise leadership of the Chairman of the WPK.
The ongoing campaign to implement the grand program of building a powerful socialist nation set forth at the 7th WPK Congress requires remarkably enhancing the leadership ability of the Party. Prerequisite for this is to enhance the function and role of the Party cell, the lower-echelon organization and main working unit of the Party.
