MINSK, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday that any amendments to his country’s election legislation should conform to Belarussian society’s maturity.
“If we ease some requirements we should be confident that this will not affect the country’s stability and manageability during the elections,” he told a meeting on modernization of the election law on Tuesday. “Let’s not organize any contests and run races. Let’s not make haste, let’s keep up with the ongoing events and especially with our society’s maturity. Let’s resolve burning issues without inventing any new problems referring to new and old democratic states and procedures.”
Lukashenko said: “We live in our country. If we have a problem, let’s resolve it. If we have no problem, let’s not create it."
