Recently, under the direction of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, it is reported that an early selection project for residents of 10,000 households in Pyongyang is underway this fall.

An inside source told Daily NK on the 12th, “The order to move into a residential house to build 10,000 households in Pyongyang this year was given as a policy on the 5th.” “The basic content is to select early candidates for moving in Sadong and Songhwa districts under the recommendations of the military and government agencies. will,” he said.

In the form of a “Measures for Implementation of Comrade Kim Jong-un’s Policy for the Stabilization of People’s Lives in Pyongyang,” this order was sent from the Cabinet to the Pyongyang City People’s Committee and the Commerce Department for the Construction of 10,000-Household House on Site, respectively.

The party, government, and military (黨‧政‧military) simultaneously responded quickly to the order containing the will of the supreme leader. First, the party and government institutions established the principle that priority should be given to ▲ residents of areas demolished near construction sites ▲ hard-working innovators ▲ veterans of war ▲ honorary soldiers ▲ discharged soldiers.

In addition, the military is selecting targets based on the families of nearby military units. In particular, it is reported that they plan to include the “strawberry field forced demolition residents” who were pushed down by the order to expand the general artillery firing range (Daewon-ri, Sadong District, Pyongyang) in July last year.

According to the source, although there are slight differences between regions in North Korea, selection of candidates and the issuance of entrance permits are usually made about a month before the construction pass decision is made. It can be seen that this measure is progressing rather quickly.

This is interpreted as an intention to show that North Korea, which had promised to “build 50,000 households in Pyongyang over the next five years” at the 8th party congress in January last year, is doing well.

In addition, it seems that the intention of the authorities, who failed to comply with the distribution of military rice, to divert the attention of the residents through housing gifts, seems to be implied. This means that the so-called “Corona Economic Crisis” has begun to select early recruits as a card to appease the angry public.

The source points out that such an atmosphere can be felt even in the party, government, and military leadership units mobilized to build a 10,000-family dwelling house in Pyongyang. It is said that voices are being heard from all over the world saying, “In order to survive, residents must complete the residency in the first round on the anniversary of the Party’s founding (October 10) and in the second round by the end of November.”

Nevertheless, the reaction of the residents is said to be cold. This is because villagers around the construction site are often mobilized, so they have seen the situation very clearly.

They say, “Is it really going to be accepted even if it says ‘Pyongyang fluttering method’ for construction at the speed of Manlima?” First of all, the highest voice is concerned about the possibility of collapse due to poor construction.

There are also many criticisms of ‘renewing self-reliance again’. It is pointed out that “80% of the households that are hired by the end of the year will most likely be bones.

Meanwhile, the Urban Management Division of the People’s Committee of Pyongyang City started to establish the rules for joining the company in close cooperation with the site construction business management department.

Here, the city management department is already emphasizing that “the target people must move and live within two months from the date of issuance of the use permit and the housing assignment” and “they can be recalled if they violate this,” the source said.
