Guarantee of Workers' Political Rights Demanded in S. Korea
Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) -- Members of the Confederation of Trade Unions, the Citizen's Solidarity for Democratic Society and other civic and public organizations of south Korea at a joint press conference on Apr. 21 demanded the guarantee of the workers' political rights.

They said at the press conference that the part-time workers and other workers are denied political rights.

They accused the "government" and business owners of despicably preventing the workers from participating in voting in every election.

Even those who went to the polls were persecuted on charges of violation of "law on election" for the mere reason that they voted against the misrule of the authorities, they noted, declaring that they would struggle to have the workers' political rights guaranteed.
