Lukashenko emphasizes need for local government reform

Lukashenko emphasizes need for local government reform

MINSK, 16 September (BelTA) – Local governance needs to be reformed, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Belarusian high-ranking officials on 16 September, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko believes that it may make sense to work with the society on the long-standing issues of reforming local government. "It is time we considered them. These bodies need to be more actively involved in solving emerging issues and take initiative,” he believes.

The president stressed: “After we study the proposals from the public, take a look into the law on parties, the entire party system, and finalize the electoral legislation, only then will we connect all these points with the constitutional reform. This will not be done vice versa.”

“Of course, these are not all the tasks we have to solve,” the head of state added.
