President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has decided to make changes in the Constitution of the country more determined. His words are quoted by BelTA.
In particular, he stated that he will share power with its grassroots level, giving some powers to the governors and chairmen of regional Executive committees. At the same time, Lukashenka stressed that a return to the 1994 Constitution would be a step backwards.
“The Constitution is the Basic law. We’ll do it in two years. Several options already offered me, but they do not fit. People are just afraid to make more drastic changes to the Constitution. I think we need to do,” said the Belarusian leader.
Earlier Victor Babariko detained opponent to Lukashenko in the presidential election, called for a referendum on the return to the 1994 Constitution.
The Constitution of Belarus was adopted in 1994. In 1996 the referendum was amended to include the redistribution of powers in favor of Executive power and the President. In 2004, by referendum of the Constitution was the clause limiting the number of terms of stay of one person on a post of the President.
