The head of state was asked about the political campaign scheduled for next year and public sentiments about it. “In February 2024 we will have the parliamentary elections, the elections to the Councils of Deputies at all levels on the single voting day. It will be followed by the elections of delegates to the Belarusian People's Congress. After that we will proceed to the presidential election. We are responsible for public security.
