MINSK, 5 December (BelTA) – The new parliament will need to join the work to improve the Constitution of the country, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he addressed the new and outgoing MPs of the House of Representativeness and members of the Council of the Republic on 5 December, BelTA has learned.
“The new legislature will have to engage with projects that are in the realm of global political solutions. We have already accumulated a number of issues that need to be addressed together at the level of the Basic Law. The new parliament will have to join the work on improving our Constitution,” the head of state said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko added that the society demands such steps. “We need to explain everything to people and offer them our options. This is exactly the case when you can prove your worth and take part in a crucial project for the state. I think the newly-elected MPs understand what a unique chance they have,” he said.
“You know my fundamental requirement: improvements to the management system should be in the focus of the proposed changes. We make use of the progressive world experience keeping in mind our national values and traditions, the way our society works. You should consider all the changes only from the state's point of view and in the interests of the people who live here,” said the Belarusian leader.
In his words, all proposals will have only a personal character. “No one will be hiding behind a collective opinion, including the parliament. Personal responsibility is the greatest benefit and a driving force behind any progress,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The president stressed that there would be no simple solutions in the political, economic or social sectors. “They all largely depend on the level of diplomatic relations with our strategic partners and world leaders, on the number and quality of business contacts around the world,” the president said.More about President
