Lukashenko: Being an MP is hard work

MINSK, 19 September (BelTA) – Being a member of the parliament is not an easy job but hard work. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he met with Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko on 19 September, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Andreichenko discussed how the meeting of members of the current parliament and the newly elected parliament will proceed. “Future MPs may be interested in learning what the parliament had to deal with yesterday and what it will take care of tomorrow. Being a member of the parliament is hard work. Taking a seat to do nothing or skipping a session is not part of the job,” stressed the President.

The head of state also drew attention to the employment of current MPs. “There can be some wishes concerning the employment of the MPs, who are quitting the parliament but not the political life,” said Alexander Lukashenko. “I would like the MPs, who leave the parliament, to find their place in life. There are MPs we cannot afford losing.”

The head of the lower chamber of the Belarusian parliament informed Alexander Lukashenko that a total of 28 people will need employment. “Together with the Belarus President Administration, the central government, and the oblast governors we have resolved the problem for 21 MPs,” he said.
