The election of the Fourth Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK took place on November 25, Juche 56 (1967).

Among the elected deputies were Han Tok Su, chairman of the General Association of Korean residents in Japan, (Chongryon) and other compatriots from all walks of life.

They were so impressed by the benevolence of the socialist country that put them forward as the overseas citizens of the DPRK and the deputies to the Supreme People’s Assembly (Member of Parliament in other countries) who discuss the political affairs of the State that they shouted hurrah at the top of their voices.

The emotional scene of that day remains etched in the history of the movements of Koreans in Japan.

President Kim Il Sung said that the Korean compatriots in Japan would be awarded the orders, medals and other official commendations for the feats they have performed for the good of the country as they were the overseas citizens of the DPRK and be elected deputies to the SPA. As he gave prominence to the representatives from Chongryon, the dignity and status of overseas Koreans in Japan could be guaranteed firmly.

Article 2 of the Election Law of the DPRK stipulates that overseas citizens of the DPRK shall be elected deputies to the SPA.

Chairman Ho Jong Man and other representatives of all social standings from Chongryon were elected deputies to the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly held last year.
