Lukashenko: We have always consulted with people and the nation has chosen a strong government

MINSK, 15 March (BelTA) – People in Belarus have always been consulted with and the nation has chosen in favor of a strong government. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during a meeting timed to the 30th anniversary of the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus, BelTA has learned.

The president stressed that all the constitutional changes in sovereign Belarus had been prompted by life and determined by time: “We have always consulted with people. And the nation responded to the challenges the country faced by going to referendums and casting votes during elections. The nation responded with an absolute majority vote. And while observing the law. Everything has been more than democratic.”

“Agenda-driven politicians tried to impose a scheme of systemic chaos and actual anarchy in the form of a parliamentary republic upon the society. But the nation made its choice in favor of a strong government,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The head of state recalled how attempts had been made to separate Belarus’ nation on the basis of language and ethnicity but Belarusians had spoken in favor of giving the state language status to two languages.

“Attempts were made to cut us off from our roots by discrediting the Soviet past but people returned to symbols of the great age because they understood that they are heirs of the heroic generation of winners,” the president noted.

“Belarus was pushed into all kinds of unions in a bid to sever friendly and tight integration ties, primarily with Russia. But the nation did not allow it. And now where are those, who have broken up with the Eastern Slavonic family?” Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked.
