Pyongyang, October 8 (KCNA) — Today marks the 20th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s election as general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

He advanced the line of modeling the whole party on Kimilsungism and energetically led the struggle for its realization and thus brought about a radical turn in its organizational and ideological construction and leadership art. Under his energetic guidance, the WPK turned into an integral whole knitted together in ideological and organizational aspects and action, closely united around the leader.
He put forward the slogan “We Serve the People!” and made a long journey of ceaseless field guidance for building a thriving country.
His outstanding political caliber was fully displayed in strengthening the WPK into a guiding force of Songun (military-first) revolution.
Kim Jong Il saw to it that the party and the revolutionary ranks have been developed into elite forces with the Korean People’s Army as the core and opened up the unique path for pushing ahead with the revolution and construction by dint of Songun political mode. This is a noteworthy event which has been unprecedented in the history of building socialist ruling party.
