MINSK, 13 November (BelTA) – The executive power vertical should continue working effectively and should keep up pace during the forthcoming election campaigns in Belarus. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he made a number of personnel appointments on 13 November, BelTA has learned.
The head of state said: “The next year is a serious one. A political ‘Bacchanalia' will begin and will last for at least a year and a half. And the parliamentary elections and the presidential election. Such events never add stability and tranquility to our society. We will have to go through this stage in our own manner without losing pace. People will not forgive us for it. A political campaign is an exam. This is why we will have to take one exam and another one and will have to give an account to the nation. Our people know how to ask questions. You should be ready for it and smoothly manage the processes in your area of responsibility.”
The head of state encouraged civil servants to deal with people's problems in concrete ways and accomplish tasks required for raising living standards of the nation. “As a head of state I've seen various nations. Whatever Belarusians can be, there are no better people than Belarusians. Our people are not spoiled. They are patient and know how to work hard. Respectively we should respond in kind. We should match our nation. This is why you should treat people humanely. If someone has to be forced to work, make it so. If someone needs help, help him or her,” said Alexander Lukashenko.
“Children are the key. Take a look at preschool institutions and schools. Take a look at health improvement, treatment, summer camps so that the future of our Belarus would be normal and healthy. You know the rest. Economy is the foundation of everything. If there is economy, there will be everything I've talked about,” concluded Alexander Lukashenko.More about President
