Lukashenko approves new appointments in regional and district executive committees

MINSK, 11 March (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko gave the go-ahead to new appointments in the Minsk Oblast Executive Committee and two district executive committees as he announced personnel decisions on 11 March, BelTA has learned.

Chairman of the Agriculture and Food Committee of the Minsk Oblast Executive Committee Vasily Sysoyev was promoted to the position of First Deputy Chairman of the Minsk Oblast Executive Committee.

Deputy Chairman of the Berezino District Executive Committee Andrei Sokolovsky was appointed chairman of the same executive committee. The Korelichi District Executive Committee will be led by Andrei Gordei, who has worked as the First Deputy Chairman of the Orsha District Executive Committee - Head of the Agriculture and Food Department.

When discussing personnel issues, Aleksandr Lukashenko addressed First Deputy Head of the Belarus President Administration Maksim Ryzhenkov who introduced candidates for the positions in the local governments. The president asked why their predecessors had to be replaced. Speaking about Gennady Shatuyev, who was relieved of his post as Chairman of the Korelichi District Executive Committee, Maksim Ryzhenkov explained that the reason was a drop in the socio-economic performance of the district. At the same time, the official was offered a job as an assistant to the Grodno Oblast first deputy governor who oversees agriculture and rural development.

“How come? If this person failed at his job, he actually did, to put it mildly, why would we promote him to the level of the regional government?” the president asked with criticism. “Sort this out, it shouldn't be like this. People see this. This shouldn't happen. People will see his transfer to Grodno as a promotion.  If this person has worked to the best of his ability, if he has deserved it - that’s another thing. But I doubt it,” the head of state noted.

Maksim Ryzhenkov assured that this situation will be closely studied.

“We should take such things very seriously. We need to be consistent, so that people will understand why we do what we do,” Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
