Meeting of Belarus’ Security Council
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko hosted a meeting of the Security Council of Belarus on 8 February.
“We are approaching the logical conclusion of the constitutional reform process. It is very important that it was a bottom-up process starting in labor collectives, at dialogue platforms in the regions. Almost all the ideas and proposals that were discussed there made their way to the new Constitution draft. These proposals were studied, supplemented and finalized by the Constitutional Commission, the working group, professional lawyers and law experts, and were widely discussed by the public,” the president said.
He noted that the referendum, as a form of declaration of people's will, played a crucial role in the history of sovereign, independent Belarus three times.
“Today it is time to strengthen the fundamental law with provisions that will help Belarus get through new challenges and threats to our statehood,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
