    Institution: Chondoist Chongu Party

    Type: Institution      

    The Chondoist Chongu Party or Korean Chondoist Chongu Party (an approximate translation into English could be "Party of the Young Friends of the Heavenly Way") is a united front party in North Korea and is labeled as democratic by the government of the country. The party was founded on February 5, 1946, by a group of followers of the Chondogyo (or Chondogyo) religion.

    The Chondoist Chongu Party is grouped under the Democratic Front for the Reunification, a coalition of all legal political parties in North Korea which is dominated by the ruling WPK. In the 1940s and 1950s, the Worker’s Party of Korea increased its dominance over North Korean politics, but kept both the Chondoist Chongu Party and the Korean Social Democratic Party as small parties under their influence in order to maintain an officially multi-party system, even if dominated by one party.
