조선로동당 은 조선민주주의인민공화국의 유일 집권정당이다. | The Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) is the ruling political party of the DPRK.





조선로동당(朝鮮勞動黨, 표준어: 조선노동당)은 조선민주주의인민공화국의 유일 집권정당이다. 한자 표기는 "노동당"이지만, 영문 표기로는 Workers' Party of Korea, 즉 "조선로동자당"이다. 조선사회민주당 및 조선천도교청우당과 같은 당이 존재하고 있기는 하지만 형식적으로, 사실상 우당에 불과하다. 실제 정치권력은 조선로동당에 집중되어 있으며, 이는 《사회주의헌법》 11조의 "조선민주주의인민공화국은 조선로동당의 령도 밑에 모든 활동을 진행한다" 라는 구절에 규정되어 있다. 이론적 기초는 주체사상과 혁명적 수령관이다.
