WPK's politics is based on people-first principle
Our Country Is The Best

By Rodong Sinmun and Kulloja

The main character of our era is that it is an era in which the history of love and devotion of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il for them is more vigorously carried forward thanks to Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un’s politics based on the people-first principle and in which the people-oriented character of the Workers' Party of Korea and the state is brought into full relief.

The word people-first doctrine implies the pro-people nature of the Workers' Party of Korea and pride of our people enjoying all the privileges, and promises rosy future of our dignified state dashing ahead like the wind.


The Supreme Leader's politics based on the people-first principle gives absolute priority to the people out of ardent love for them.

The example of the genuine people-oriented politics in line with the socialist idea and nature of socialism is the people-first politics of the Supreme Leader who is brilliantly embodying President Kim Il Sung's idea of believing in people as in Heaven and Chairman Kim Jong Il's benevolent politics on the highest level.

The people-first principle is a political ideal of regarding the masses of the people as masters of the revolution and construction, relying on them and making selfless, devoted efforts for their interests.

His people-first politics is the politics of giving top priority to the people through which to put the people's standing onto the highest level and solve all the problems arising in the administration of the politics relying on them.

By the noble outlook of the Supreme Leader on upholding the people as he would do the great leaders, the essence of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, the guiding ideology of the Party and state, was defined as the people-first principle, the idea of thoroughly embodying the outlook of the President and the Chairman on the people was created and the slogan "Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!" was made an immovable major principle and method of the Party and state activities.

The Supreme Leader’s people-first politics is the politics of the most ardent love for the people with which to take full responsibility for the people's destiny and life and take good care of them.

It is the Supreme Leader's will that no slightest concession nor risk can be allowed as concerns the people's life and safety and that the greatest measure in the world should be taken without hesitation for the good of the people.

As early as the outbreak of COVID-19, a serious threat to the human existence, the Supreme Leader took powerful preemptive and blocking emergency anti-epidemic measures to curb the inflow and spread of the epidemic with his foresighted sagacity and resolute determination.

Now, the world is expressing its admiration for the important measure taken by our Party.


The Supreme Leader's people-first politics is a future-oriented one which thoroughly ensures the prosperity of all generations of the country and nation to come.

It is the Supreme Leader's unshakable faith and mettle that we should follow the road of Juche alone no matter what others might say or which road others may take, that we can never barter away the dignity of the state for anything else and that we should open a broad avenue to prosperity in our style and by our efforts relying on the principle of self-reliance and self-development.

The Supreme Leader established the universal 12-year compulsory education system despite the difficult conditions of the country, went the length of caring for the children’s schoolbags and school things, discussed the issue of people’s dwelling houses at the enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee and arranged for the modern medical service centers to be built before anything else, saying that the people's good health is his greatest pleasure and strongest power.

Indeed, his politics serves as a paragon indicative of what standpoint and attitude the political leader of socialism should be possessed of.

His people-first politics has brought a brilliant reality to our country.

Thanks to the politics, the single-minded unity, noble revolutionary heritage left by the great leaders, has been further cemented and the bright future is in store for us.

For the past eight years, our Party has led the socialist cause to victory with its invincible leadership and steered the ever-changing world political trend in the interests of our state and people.

The people-first politics proved in practice the immutable truth that not only economic power, scientific and technological potential and defence capability but also external prestige of a country are decided by political creed and mode.

It is the greatest fortune and privilege of our people to have the Supreme Leader in the van of our revolution.

Neither challenge of history nor desperate efforts of the enemies can check the road ahead of our people who are faithfully upholding the politics of the Party.

The world will clearly witness how the Workers’ Party of Korea will build a powerful and prospering socialist country by giving full play to the might and wisdom of the great people.
