VITEBSK, 15 December (BelTA) – If the people of Belarus vote in favor of the draft updated Constitution, a lot of responsible work will have to be done after that in order to redesign some aspects of the country. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he met with Vitebsk Oblast senior officials on 15 December, BelTA has learned.


Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “What happens after is important. We will have to revise hundreds of regulatory acts. We will have to rebuild the country. Not only from the point of view of statutory and regulatory practices but we will have to reorganize some aspects of the country. It is my most important task as the president. Nobody can handle these matters instead of me. I have to organize this work together with the central government, oblast governors, heads of municipal administrations, and you – senior officials. In order to let the country stand steadily on the pillars it is supposed to stand on.”

The Belarusian leader stressed: “I am sure if you work a little harder, put your back into it, we will resolve any problems. I am convinced that no other president has people like you.”


Aleksandr Lukashenko once again pointed out: “The referendum is not designed to suit Lukashenko. I want you to understand at last: if people don't vote in favor of amending the Constitution, the current ‘authoritarian' Constitution will stay in place. Any president can only dream of such a Constitution.”


The head of state noted it is time to redistribute authority between government agencies but without misbalancing things and without concentrating all the powers in the same pair of hands. Belarus should remain a monolithic state without duality of power.


“I don't want our children to work for someone else's benefit. We used to wear bast shoes, be whipped, and work for everyone,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “I don't want the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth to stretch here from one sea to another like our neighbors say. They want to integrate all of Belarus into Poland. It won't happen. It is our country.”
