The Sixth Conference of Cell Secretaries of the Workers’ Party of Korea opened in the capital city Pyongyang on April 6 amid the great concern and expectation of the entire Party members and other people who are making an all-out dash for implementing the new strategic line and policy of struggle for socialist construction presented by the Eighth Congress of the WPK and the Second Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Party Central Committee.
The conference will generally analyze and sum up the work of the Party cell secretaries after the Fifth Conference of Cell Chairpersons and discuss tasks and practical ways to decisively improve and strengthen the work of the Party cells at present.
Present at the conference were mainly exemplary cell secretaries working in production sites and Party cell secretaries working in different sectors and central and local party officials.
The respected Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, came out to the rostrum to guide the Sixth Conference of Cell Secretaries.
The rostrum was taken by Jo Yong Won, Member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK and Organizational Secretary of the Party Central Committee; Jong Sang Hak and Ri Il Hwan, Secretaries of the Party Central Committee; Kwon Yong Jin, Director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army; Kim Jae Ryong, O Il Jong and Ho Chol Man, Department Directors of the Party Central Committee, and leading party officials in the capital and the provinces.
Kim Jong Un made an opening address of the conference.
At the conference Jo Yong Won, Member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK and Organizational Secretary of the Party Central Committee, made a report “Let us further enhance the militancy and fighting capacity of the Party cells to implement the five-year plan presented by the Eighth Party Congress unconditionally and resolutely”.
He said: The new century of the Juche era when the Fourth Conference of Cell Secretaries of the WPK and the Fifth Conference of Cell Chairpersons of the Party were held under the direct proposal and guidance of Kim Jong Un has been registered as a glorious age of struggle which fully demonstrates the great vitality of the idea on attaching importance to the Party cells and the line of strengthening them.
Party cell is a basic unit linking the lineage of the Party and the masses and a combat unit and the first-line trench directly implementing the lines and policies of the Party by organizing and mobilizing the Party members and other working people. Such classic formulation is an immortal guideline which clarified the importance of the position and role of the Party cells in a scientific way.
The Eighth Congress of the WPK and the First Short Course for the Chief Secretaries of the City and County Party Committees clearly presented ideas and theories including the issue on establishing the revolutionary habit of correctly adopting the Party decisions and implementing them unconditionally, the issue on strengthening criticism, ideological campaign and study within the Party and the issue on transferring the strengthening of the Party cells into the work of the Party Committees, more clearly showing the revolutionary character and aspect of the working Party, struggling Party and advancing Party and making it possible to strengthen the militancy of the Party in every way. The energetic ideological and theoretical activities of Kim Jong Un will shine forever along with the strengthening of the Party cells.
Today our Party cells could be firmly consolidated as the solid integral whole firmly united with ideology and purpose, as a grassroots bulwark of the Party rooted among the masses and as the immutable cornerstone defending the lines and policies of the Party entirely thanks to the brilliant fruition of the outstanding idea and leadership of Kim Jong Un, he stressed.
The report mentioned the successes and experiences made by the Party cells in their work to carry through the crucial tasks of cementing the Party cells as loyal cells and vanguard ranks of implementing the Party policy as presented by the Fifth Conference of Cell Chairpersons of the WPK.
The report also summed up the shortcomings in having failed to intensify the work for strengthening the militant might of the Party cells as intended by the Party in the past.
Jo Yong Won said that today the absolute worship of the entire Party members and other people and service personnel of the People’s Army for Kim Jong Un gets stronger with each passing day and a leap forward is constantly made toward the high peak of socialism and the present reality urgently demands all firmly arm themselves with the revolutionary idea of Kim Jong Un and his outlook on revolution, and presented tasks for strengthening the Party cells.
Jo Yong Won said: Strengthening the Party cells means cementing the Party and enhancing the role of the Party cells means increasing the leadership ability and militancy of the Party. All the Party cell secretaries should never forget the important mission that they are responsible for the grassroots organizations of the dignified WPK but remain loyal to the revolutionary idea and leadership of Kim Jong Un and thus become the frontline combatants and vanguard fighters implementing the new five-year plan set forth at the Eighth Party Congress unconditionally and resolutely.
The report was followed by speeches.
In the speeches some achievements and experiences were profoundly analyzed and summed up, which were made in the past struggle to train all the Party members in the cells as genuine Kimilsungists-Kimjongilists and strengthen the Party cells into a solid integral whole firmly united with ideology and purpose and as powerful militant ranks implementing the lines and policies of the Party in the van to the end.
Shortcomings were also criticized and summed up that some Party cells had failed to organize and guide the life of the Party members properly.
The conference continues.
