The Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) is the founding and ruling political party of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the largest party represented in the Supreme People's Assembly. The WPK is the sole governing party of North Korea. It coexists de jure with two other legal parties making up the Democratic Front for the Reunification of the Fatherland. However, these minor parties are completely subservient to the WPK, and must accept the WPK's "leading role" as a condition of their existence.
