MINSK, April 19. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has stressed the need to update the country’s constitution, so that the next Belarusian leader would have a new constitution to work with, he said during his annual address to the Belarusian parliament on Friday.

"People often ask me: would you like to leave this Constitution to your successor? I say clearly and honestly: no. We are already past this stage when we need power as strong as it is," Lukashenko noted.

"We have to give authority to other structures and branches of power. For example, so that the government along with the parliament would be responsible for the economy," the Belarusian leader said.

Lukashenko added that he would not attempt to stay in power after his presidential tenure. "I think of my country’s future, not of personal power," he stressed.

The Belarusian leader added that the new Constitution would be a natural continuation of the current one.
