Lukashenko names main qualities for President of Belarus

MINSK, 25 February (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko named the main qualities for the President of Belarus as he spoke to the media on 25 February, BelTA has learned.

“I know that many officials do not like me, because I strictly demand the fulfillment of our agreements and decisions taken by the president. If they are not implemented, then the whole structure of power will collapse and the society will drown. Yeah, I realize that. Probably, not all journalists like me because of my character and so on. But the good thing is that journalists, and then the society, thanks to journalists, begin to realize that everything that Lukashenko said or demanded turned out to be the right thing,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president cited the example of the fight against the coronavirus: the Belarusian approach was not immediately accepted, but then it turned out that the decisions of the head of state were the most optimal in the midst of the pandemic. The country did not impose a lockdown, did not shut down factories and enterprises. Such moves brought their desired effect. “The whole world was going in an absolutely different direction. Who turned out to be right in the end?” the Belarusian leader asked a rhetorical question.

“This is my job: to think and forecast using my experience and knowledge. If the president is unable to do this, he or she is not fit for the job. Therefore, this is the main quality of the president. Naturally, one must have a very strong sixth sense. Most importantly, one should always remember where he or she came from, be a down-to-earth person. One must also remember that 10 million people and three million more, who come here on holiday, are people whom you should truly care about. You should care about them the most once you are President,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
