MINSK, 17 November (BelTA) – Proactive people who will work in the parliament will be supported in Belarus, President Aleksandr Lukashenko said, addressing the press pool after he cast his vote at the parliamentary election on 17 November, BelTA informs.
“This is a very serious practical issue for me. I have never concealed that we will support certain proactive people who will work in this parliament,” the head of state said. “In any country a certain MP or a group of MPs are supported. We are saying this openly without playing any democracy.”
“As the head of state supervising the operation of all branches of power in accordance with the Constitution, I am doing my best to make them efficient. I want the life in the country to improve after these elections. This is my goal,” the Belarusian leader remarked.
In his words, a new convocation of the parliament will have to address many issues. “But I will tell you about their main objective. We have built the first sovereign independent state in Belarus. All of you, all of us. Some people were building it, others were and still are dragging behind impeding the development of this state. So, the main objective for all branches of power in Belarus is to protect the state, its sovereignty and independence. It is important for the parliament to make laws, which are the rules of life in the society. This is the main thing. People will solve other issues on their own,” Aleksandr Lukashenko believes.
“All people in the country should do their job. MPs should make and codify laws, make them simpler and more understandable, they should pass new laws as live goes on and is changing, and we must keep up with it,” the head of state stressed.
Speaking about his vote in the election, he said: “You shouldn't even ask about it. If you look at the voting list, you will understand immediately for whom I voted. If I appoint a person to a certain position, and do not do anything bad since then (only good things), I can vote for them.”
