MINSK, 19 November (BelTA) – We need to engage as many Belarusians as possible in the nationwide dialogue, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko said at a meeting of the fourth session of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the seventh convocation on 19 November, BelTA has learned.
“The autumn session continues its work. The main task for us remains the same. This is consistent implementation of the legislative plans. At the same time, we can not stay away from the problems that the country is living through today. The absolute priority here is to prepare for the forthcoming Belarusian People's Congress. First of all, we need to summarize the proposals the House of Representatives received and submit them to the national organizing committee of the forum,” Vladimir Andreichenko said.
In his words, the extensive dialogue that is currently taking place on various discussion platforms involving MPs should continue. “It is necessary to involve as many Belarusians as possible in this process. This is the way how every citizen today can contribute to decisions that are crucial for the future of Belarus,” the speaker said.
Vladimir Andreichenko stressed that it is necessary to listen to all the participants of the dialogue, regardless of their political stands. “Organizers of unrests actively push people to more radical, thoughtless actions. Their initial goal was to split the authorities. The representatives of many government bodies, including MPs, experienced severe psychological pressure. When this plan failed, they switched to other dirty methods of information warfare. The campaign to discredit the state symbols led to the death of a man. This, however, is not enough for provocateurs either. They are already trying to drag the faithful into a conflict and ignite religious discord,” he said.
The speaker added that attempts to instill the idea that the Belarusian economy with its idea of social justice is ineffective continue. “Although objective information tells us quite different things,” he said.
