Today when we have to bring about a new change and development of Korean-style socialism, our officials, the core of the Party and leading personnel of the revolution, assume important and heavy responsibility, the editorial says, and goes on:

The dignity and authority of the Party Central Committee and the realization of the Party's plan depend on the role of officials and the advance and development of the state and the improvement of the people's living standard are guaranteed by the responsibility and devotion of officials.
