Belarus president: Pre-election promises must be fulfilled unconditionally

Belarus president: Pre-election promises must be fulfilled unconditionally

MINSK, 26 May (BelTA) – The promises made prior to the Belarus president election must be fulfilled unconditionally. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the government conference held on 26 May to discuss the draft main provisions of the program on Belarus’ social and economic development in 2016-2020, BelTA has learned. The program will be submitted for consideration of the fifth Belarusian People’s Congress.

The Belarusian leader stressed: “The strategic social and economic development goals for the medium term and the measures to reach those goals have been determined. What we promised to the people in the pre-election period must be unconditionally fulfilled. It is now necessary to sketch out further practical steps. As part of the pre-election campaign we made up our minds about what we intended to accomplish. Virtually one year after the presidential election our program should not be changed drastically, at least the main strategic points must be preserved intact.”

The President remarked that the 2016-2020 national social and economic development program will be the key document for discussions during the Belarusian People’s Congress. “I would like to see a new, more interesting form of the document. I would like this form to be live. Not only specialists but people, for whom we set out to accomplish the goals the program outlines, should be able to comprehend this program, these indicators and every chapter,” said the head of state.
