The whole course in which Kim Jong Il led the WPK is shining with the immortal feats he performed for building the WPK into the party of the leader and revolutionary party of Juche with his original party building idea and theory and outstanding leadership.

He turned the WPK into the veteran and tested general staff of the revolution which leads the revolution and construction to victory by the Juche-oriented leadership method.
He led the revolution and construction, regarding it as the iron rule in party building and activities to solve all problems by firmly believing in and relying on the people, the driving force of revolution.
In the protracted course of leading the WPK he brought up the Korean people to be the dignified independent people, powerful driving force of revolution.
