Lukashenko: The elections convincingly demonstrated lack of reasons to change the state policy

MINSK, 7 October (BelTA) – The latest parliamentary elections convincingly demonstrated that there is no dissent in the society and there are no reasons to change the state policy. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he addressed outgoing and newly elected members of the country’s parliament on 7 October, BelTA has learned.

The head of state underlined that the elections reaffirmed the growing role of the parliament in the preparation of the country’s development strategy and the parliament’s growing political base. Alexander Lukashenko said he believes that these facts are confirmed by the participation of political parties and public associations of various views in the election campaign as well as the fact that their representatives won parliamentary seats in a fair fight.

“Some people are eager to count how many opposition members exactly have made it into the new parliament — three, four, and so on. Let me emphasize that these are not my calculations. Any member of the parliament has his or her own views. Moreover, an MP is elected by voters, who are concerned about certain problems and would like these problems resolved,” noted the head of state. “Dividing the parliament is not my job. For me it is a united parliament. And every parliamentarian has equal power in accordance with the law.”
