Lukashenko: The nation is looking forward to changes for the better

MINSK, 20 October (BelTA) – The amount of public expectations that we should satisfy has reached a critical level, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the government conference held on 20 October to discuss topical aspects of the country’s development, BelTA has learned.

The Belarusian leader stressed that he does not want to use populism and believes it should be completely eliminated from the political scene. “I would describe the defining feature of the recent presidential election as follows: we have supported you and will continue to do so, but we want changes for the better,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“Belarusian people hold considerable expectations, I would say, a critical amount of expectations. We have no right to fail them,” the Belarusian leader believes.

In his words, the main thing is to enhance the standards of living. Those who voted for the President hope their living standards will improve. “I do not say how to achieve this. You all should give people jobs and demand high labor productivity from them,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.
