Lukashenko does not rule out abolishing Ordinance No. 3

Lukashenko does not rule out abolishing Ordinance No. 3MINSK, 3 February (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko does not rule out the possibility to abolish Ordinance No. 3. He made the statement at the meeting with the members of the public, representatives of the Belarusian and foreign mass media on 3 February, BelTA informs.

“This ordinance has been in force for 2-3 years. If we arrive at an unyielding conclusion that it is an anachronism and it is not necessary, we will abolish it. Do not hurry. Perhaps, it still can add many useful things to our lives,” Alexander Lukashenko noted.

The President stressed that the ordinance is, first of all, focused on those who have no jobs and do not take part in the financing of the public expenditure. These people do not live within their means and use all amenities such as free education and healthcare services. “We encourage them to work. We do not compel them to work, but they must pay for services,” the head of state said.

Alexander Lukashenko reminded that the document has been recently amended. Local authorities now can exempt a person in difficulty from the tax.

“There are no reasons to continue discussing this topic today,” the President concluded.
