MINSK, 10 June (BelTA) - It is better to make a mistake while making a decision than to do nothing at all and wait for something, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko voiced this golden rule for officials and local leaders as he spoke at the national seminar-conference to discuss new methods and forms of public communication at the grassroots level, BelTA has learned.
Having listened to the speeches of the participants of the seminar, the head of state instructed Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Sergeyenko to implement the proposals voiced at the meeting during the summer period. Aleksandr Lukashenko pointed out that many of the suggestions were true and timely. At the same time they were quite simple to implement and did not require major changes. Moreover, they should have been implemented long ago, the Belarusian leader added.
“Remember that it is better to make a mistake when making a decision (you can always correct it) than to do nothing at all and wait for something to happen. We are unable to prescribe all cases of life in laws, decrees, or directives, and we are unable to prescribe a mechanism of action, a methodology for all these cases. There is no need for that. Fairness should be the basis for it. If there are no laws, normative legal acts, you have to make a decision. You, mayors and governors, are authorities after all. Make these decisions. If you need agreement, just make a call,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.
“Take action. Never sit and wait for things to resolve themselves,” the president added.
