LIDA, 2 November (BelTA) - Only the states where the authorities act on behalf of the people can survive today, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly Vladimir Andreichenko said at the seminar to discuss the legal framework for the Belarusian People's Congress and the improvement of the electoral legislation that was held in Lida, Grodno Oblast on 2 November, BelTA has learned.

“The world has entered an era of severe turbulence. Today no one can clearly predict what scenario events will unfold over the next decade. The more so because the actions of the Western alliance defy any rational explanation. One thing is clear - there is no going back to the old ways. Global restructuring will affect absolutely all states. In fact, it is already underway. We are witnessing the growth of sharp political, economic and social upheavals in the richest and, as it seemed, perfectly prosperous countries. It only looks to get worse,” said Vladimir Andreichenko.

“Only the states where the authorities act on behalf of the people and in the name of the people, where social harmony has been achieved and intergenerational continuity and civil peace have been ensured, will be able to overcome all the trials with minimal losses,” the speaker added. “The Belarusian People's Congress is designed to solve such issues. It has more than once helped the government find adequate answers to the challenges of time and at least twice (in October 1996 and in February 2021) helped to lead the country away from the abyss. That is why the citizens of Belarus are firmly convinced that the Belarusian People's Congress is an efficient democratic institute which must be given a constitutional status,” he said.

The draft laws “On Amendments to the Electoral Code of the Republic of Belarus” and “On the Belarusian People's Congress” have been submitted for public debate. The House of Representatives is the organizer of the debate on the draft law “On the Belarusian People's Congress”. MPs take an active part in the work of dialogue platforms of various levels, hold information meetings in labor collectives to explain the provisions of the draft laws. Some 140 such events have taken place. The comments and suggestions of the participants of the public dialogue will be taken into account during the preparation of the draft law for the first reading at the current session of the House of Representatives. The discussion process is to end with a seminar-meeting in Lida on 2 November.
