Rodong Sinmun S. Korean People Called upon to Create New Political Landscape

Pyongyang, October 26 (KCNA) -- It is the desire and wishes of the overwhelming majority of south Koreans to bring new politics and life to south Korea.

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says this in a bylined article carried as regards the by-elections to local autonomous bodies including Seoul mayoral election to take place in south Korea today.

The elections mark important occasions in the actions to put an end to the outdated politics and bring about new politics, the article notes, and goes on:

The south Koreans have covered the path of bloody struggles against the traitorous ruling quarters for decades in order to bring about new politics and life.

It presents itself as a vital demand to put an end to the country-selling policy and build a new independent and democratic society in south Korea.

The on-going fascist repressive offensive against the progressive forces in south Korea is no more than the last-ditch effort of the conservative group to stamp out the forces for democratic reforms and maintain its reactionary rule. The "Grand National Party" is now talking about "change" and "cleanup" with the above-said elections as a momentum. This, however, is nothing but a crafty artifice to calm down the people's protest against the "government" and stay in power.

The south Koreans who want something new have nothing to expect from the south Korean ruling forces as they have disclosed their intention to invariably preserve the "nature of their system" and "conservative view on value."

The south Koreans aspiring after independence, democracy and reunification are called upon to boldly break with the things old and create new political landscape by themselves.

It is an immutable law governing history that the new prevails over the old in the struggle between them.
