Along with the Politburo and Central Control Committee, the Secretariat is one of the three power organizations subordinate to the Party Central Committee. Also, the Secretariat is involved in coordination of the party structure.[1] It has authority in the Worker' Party of Korea, but does not have policy-making influence. The Politburo and its Presidium can elect or appoint officials in the Secretariat.
