A sharp wind is blowing in the Workers’ Party of Korea ahead of the 10th anniversary of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s appointment as first secretary to the party (April 11). It is said that the North Korean authorities have begun a major reorganization of the party, and party officials are in danger of restructuring.

According to a daily NK high-ranking North Korean source on the 8th, North Korea issued an order related to the reorganization of the Workers’ Party of Korea early last month and emphasized that the measures should be completed 11 days before Chairman Kim’s appointment as the first secretary of the party.

According to the source, this directive is focused on the consolidation and abolition of departments within the party and reduction of the number of personnel. Above all, it is observed that approximately 300-350 executives will be relocated from the central party alone due to this reorganization.

The target of restructuring is said to be senior executives who are not actually participating in party affairs or those who have been holding their positions without any special performance for the past 10 years. Party cadres belonging to this group are expected to be transferred to Pyongyang City Party, district party, or party-affiliated enterprise or production plant.

However, it is known that even if he goes to a company or factory, he will assume the position of party secretary related to his original job.

The source explained that North Korea’s reorganization of the party organization in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Chairman Kim’s appointment as the party’s first secretary was intended to minimize the party’s unnecessary reporting phase and to strengthen direct central government.

Since there are many reporting stages from the central to the lower level organizations of each regional party, the problem that the original instructions of the party are not properly communicated and executed has been constantly pointed out.

In particular, the central government said that after this reorganization, it plans to organize a meeting for key regional party executives to directly check the situation in each region and conduct a general meeting. Accordingly, the central party-led sub-organizational management and control system is expected to be further strengthened.

In the midst of this, inside and outside the party, it is reported that the reorganization of the party is an unavoidable option to solve the problem of lack of party funds. It is said that the number of people belonging to the party is being reduced because there is not enough ration to provide to party cadres.

A source said, “It is said that the party took this measure because it is not in a situation where it can take care of everything for free of charge as in the past. , to send them to farms,” he said.

Meanwhile, North Korea plans to carry out the reorganization of the city and county parties later, but it is not clear whether the organization of the outside groups will be carried out together at this time.

On the other hand, it is known that North Korea plans to hold an event in the form of a central report conference or a commemorative conference in connection with the 10th anniversary of Chairman Kim’s appointment as the first secretary of the party.

Through this, North Korea is expected to promote internal solidarity by promoting the achievements of Chairman Kim during his reign and strengthening ideological projects such as pledges of allegiance to Chairman Kim. In this regard, the source said that on the 11th, a meeting for the oath of allegiance in which all party workers will participate is scheduled.

The source said, “This is the first time that a meeting or a commemorative convention has been planned for the party workers on the day of his appointment as the first secretary of the party.”
