Alexander Lukashenko held a working meeting with the Chairman of the Supreme Court of Belarus Valentin Sukalo. Lukashenka invited him to take part in the work on the reform of the Constitution, which is now being carried out by the Belarusian authorities, the press service of the President of Belarus reports.
"Alexander Lukashenko said that work is now underway on the third version of the Constitution of Belarus, and asked the chairman of the Supreme Court to join this work," the statement says.
Thus, Lukashenko believes that changes are needed that will move society forward. “We will insist on such changes and propose such changes to our people,” the President of Belarus stressed. And a return to the 1994 Constitution, he said, will not give it.
Lukashenko noted that now in Belarus specialists, including judges of the Constitutional Court, are working on amendments to the Basic Law of the country. Then the draft of the updated Constitution will be submitted for public discussion. "In order to twist, express their opinion, what they like, dislike, their own considerations. But at the same time I want to say to those who are especially zealous, who are shouting for change with hubbub: they must understand that every adult has a vote for a particular issue in According to the Constitution, there is one vote - both for peasants and workers, teachers, doctors, specialists, and those who have reached the age of 18 and today wander the streets of calm, clean, comfortable Minsk," the head of state said.
At the same time, he noted that the vote of the country's minor citizens cannot be taken into account, although they can express their opinion.
