MINSK, January 19 (Itar-Tass) — President Alexander Lukashenko said it is possible to carry out political transformations in Belarus.
“Today we’re studying certain tendencies in the world. Of course, we’ll make attempts to modernise our political system,” Lukashenko told Chinese journalists.
“We’ll hold parliamentary elections. I believe that we should rivet attention to political reforms in our country,” the Belarusian leader said. In his words, “we will do this, but I don’t see any catastrophe. But we should move a step forward of the processes that can happen at present.”
According to the president, he “thought of this and discussed these problems with the people. We will move towards this direction.”
At the same time, he noted, “The key task is to preserve stability, to create normal living conditions and allow people to express their own views, and preserve people’s fundamental rights.”
