Pyongyang, January 10 (KCNA) -- The 8th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) discussed the third agenda item "On amendments to the rules of the WPK".

The Party Central Committee modified and supplemented some contents of the Party Rules in line with the development and principle of the Party work to meet the requirements of the developing revolution and corresponding to the new fighting tasks facing the Party, before referring them to the 8th Congress of the WPK for discussion.

The 8th Congress of the WPK adopted resolution "On Amendments to Rules of the WPK" with unanimous approval.

The revised rules of the WPK further highlighted great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, eternal guiding idea of our Party, clearly defined the supreme programme of the Party and the basic political mode under socialism, and modified and supplemented some forms of organization of the Party and the norms of its activities.

Some contents of the preface to the Party Rules have been adjusted focusing on further clearly identifying the revolutionary nature of our Party.

The preface defined that Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism is an encyclopedia of the revolution and the construction which has been systematized in an integral way based on the Juche idea, and a revolutionary and scientific idea whose truth and vitality have been proven in the practical struggle for realizing independence of the popular masses.

It also codified that Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism is to be held high as the eternal banner of the revolution and construction.

It also defined on modeling the whole society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, the supreme programme of our Party, to further clarify the revolutionary nature and mission of our Party.

It formulated the people-first politics as the basic political mode under socialism in reflection of the requirements of the developing revolution in which the prestige and might of our country has been fundamentally changed and it is advancing toward another greater victory from victory.

The preface modified and supplemented part of the contents related to the immediate fighting tasks of the Party.

It supplemented contents on accelerating the complete victory of socialism while firmly consolidating the material and technical foundation of socialism and giving further play to the advantages of the socialist system, and on steadily bolstering the armed forces of the Republic politically and ideologically and in military technique.

It newly specified contents on safeguarding the democratic national rights and interests of overseas compatriots, rallying them firmly under the banner of patriotism and arousing their national dignity and patriotic enthusiasm.

In the part related to the fighting tasks for national reunification, it clearly clarified that powerful defence capabilities would fundamentally contain military threats and safeguard the stability and peaceful environment of the Korean peninsula.

The Party rules modified and supplemented part of chapters and articles defining the working rules of conduct, mode of activities and norms to be observed by Party organizations and members.

They supplemented the contents that Party congresses are to be held every five years and modified a notice on the convention of Party congresses to be made several months earlier.

They deleted contents about reviewing the work of the Party Central Auditing Commission and electing it, and specified that it is to be elected at the plenary meeting of the Party Central Committee.

They changed the office regulations of chairmen and vice-chairman of Party committees at all levels into chief secretary, secretary and vice-secretary, and changed the Executive Policy Council into Secretariat and Executive Policy Office into Sub-secretariat.

Supplemented were contents that a department is to be introduced (including non-permanent organization) in the Party Central Committee and when necessary the Party Rules are to be modified and executed and then submitted to the Party congress for permission.

It was supplemented to the article stipulating the duty and power of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee that the Political Bureau convenes the plenary meeting of the Party Central Committee.

It was defined as an article that the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee discusses and determines the important issues urgently arising in politics, economy and military, and appoints and dismisses important officials of the Party and the state and that members of the Presidium can preside over a meeting of the Political Bureau upon authorization by the head of the Party.

It was newly supplemented that the meeting of the Central Military Commission of the Party can be convened with attendance of necessary members only in disregard of presence rate, according to the character of the agenda. This has provided a practical guarantee for ensuring promptness in discussion of urgent military affairs.

It was specified in the rules that the Inspection Commission of the Central Committee of the Party is dissolved and its function is transferred to the Central Auditing Commission of the Party.

As the Party Central Auditing Commission is vested with stronger power, the power of the provincial, city and county party auditing commissions is raised and an article regarding it was newly created.

It was also supplemented that conference of secretaries of cells of the Party and conference of secretaries of primary Party committees are convened every 5 years.

Clearly stipulated are the nature of the People's Army as the revolutionary armed forces of the WPK and the duties of the party organizations at all levels within the People's Army.

The issue of changing the name will be determined at a future youth league conference.

Besides, some unrealistic expressions were rectified and articles concerning the detailed regulations for election of the Party leadership body were modified as the Party rules were amended.
