Referring to the greatness and peerless feats of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un who has wisely led the WPK and the Juche revolution by successfully carrying forward the revolutionary cause of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, he said as follows:

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un is the outstanding political leader possessed of gifted ideological and theoretical wisdom, extraordinary leadership and sublime personality.

He has seen through the changing trends of the historical development with his far-sighted wisdom and rare insight, wisely clarified the far-reaching strategy of the Juche revolution and comprehensively indicated the great action programmes and invincible strategic and tactical guidelines for the revolution and construction in our era.

He also ushered in an eye-opening heyday in all fields of politics, economy, military affairs and culture by wisely leading the Korean revolution and socialist construction only to victory with his extraordinary leadership.

Under his strict control and correct leadership, the organizational and ideological foundation of the Party has been strengthened in every way and our Party has developed remarkably into the powerful general staff of the revolution, and the overall might and position of the country have been put on the highest level in a short historical time. Therefore, our Republic has greeted the most glorious era in its history of the nation spanning 5 000 years.

Thanks to the leadership of the Supreme Leader who has successfully pursued the people-first politics and maintained ideology as the motive force of the revolution, the single-minded unity of the Party and the people, the most powerful weapon of our revolution, has been further consolidated to be an invincible one, and ceaseless miracles and innovation made in all fields of socialist construction.

Despite persistent economic blockade by the imperialists, he unyieldingly and finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, consolidated the war deterrent for self-defence of the Republic as the strongest and thoroughly contained the military maneuvers of the U.S. and its vassal forces with powerful force, thereby strikingly demonstrating to the world the position of our state as a military power and successfully guaranteeing the well-being and future of the country. This is the greatest exploit which can be performed by the Supreme Leader only.

Wisely foreseeing the danger of the epidemic which caused the global health crisis, he has made sure that unprecedented preemptive top-class emergency anti-epidemic position has been maintained since its outbreak, successfully led the all-Party and nationwide drive to recover from a series of terrible natural disasters and reliably safeguarded the security of the country and the well-being of the people. This exploit is deeply enshrined in the hearts of all people across the country.

He is the popular leader possessed of the personality not only as a leader but also as a revolutionary and a human being at the noblest level.

With his outstanding diplomatic strategy and super external activities, he has defended independence, justice and peace and steered the world political trend to be favorable for our revolution.

Saying that the Supreme Leader, who has successfully carried forward and developed the revolutionary cause of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, is the only man who can lead our Party and the revolution along the road of victory and glory, the speaker stressed that it is the solemn requirement of the times and history and ardent appeal and unshakable will of millions of Party members and other people to hold the Supreme Leader at the top post of the WPK.

The speaker courteously proposed at the congress holding the Supreme Leader in high esteem as the general secretary of the WPK, reflecting the firm will and unanimous desire of all Party members and other people across the country to ceaselessly develop the WPK into the glorious Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Party and successfully carry forward the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered on Mt Paektu under the guidance of the Party. -0-
