Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko heard out a report from Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Sergeyenko on 25 January.

Preparations for the forthcoming elections of members of the parliament and municipal councils of deputies as well as personnel matters were key items on the agenda.

“What is the state of affairs in the election process?” the President asked Igor Sergeyenko and wondered whether he has to get involved in the process. “Are there any drawbacks, requests, and so on?”

The head of state also asked questions concerning the personnel situation: “We have several vacancies. I’ve just talked to [newly appointed Healthcare Minister Aleksandr] Khodzhayev. I believe he will be quite a good minister.” Aleksandr Lukashenko said he had signed the relevant decree on appointing the minister and gave instructions to introduce the new minister before the Healthcare Ministry staff on 26 January. “I’d like the prime minister to introduce him and outline the tasks the ministry has to accomplish,” the President explained.
