Lukashenko names main principles of personnel selection

MINSK, 6 May (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko spoke about personnel selection at the meeting to discuss the development of Minsk, BelTA has learned.

The head of state raised an important issue of maintaining law and order in the capital city. “We must pay special attention to this. Unfortunately, Minsk was not up to par in 2020. But this is a lesson for us that shows in which direction we need to go,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president also spoke about recruitment. “Naturally, personnel is all important. What has changed in terms of personnel selection after you were appointed to this position two years ago?” the Belarusian leader asked addressing Vladimir Kukharev, the mayor of Minsk. “Let's be frank. The municipal administration was not on top when it came to personnel, patriotism and reliability. What has changed?” the president asked.

Aleksandr Lukashenko addressed a number of questions to Presidential Aide - Inspector for Minsk Aleksandr Barsukov and president's representatives Natalya Kochanova and Ivan Kubrakov. “I warned you, the minister of internal affairs and the aide: personnel issues should remain a top priority,” the president said. “There should be no mistakes. I am not saying that you should crack down on people and so on. But, if people are not fit for their jobs in pubic administration, they should not be there. Those who want to do something good for the country and Minsk, are most welcome,” the president said.

In addition, Aleksandr Lukashenko asked how communication between the city authorities and the central government is maintained and whether there are any problems in this regard. “Do you have any problems with the government? Maybe there are some misunderstandings? Natalya Kochanova should have settled all the issues as the highest-level official, the contact person of the Minsk City Council and the government. We try to cater to all the city's needs, but perhaps some problems remain,” the Belarusian leader said.
