Alexander Lukashenko said that the President of Belarus after the constitutional amendments will retain his main powers, TASS reports.
According to Lukashenko, the president will retain basic powers that can influence any decision from top to bottom. The head of Belarus noted that during the current year it is necessary to finally determine the powers of the branches of government in the country. This process must be completed before the draft of the new constitution is submitted to a referendum.
Earlier, Lukashenka signed a decree on the composition of the Constitutional Commission. The new organization was headed by the chairman of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Bashkortostan Petr Miklashevich. The President of Belarus proposed to combine the referendum on changing the constitution with the elections of deputies of local Councils of the Republic of Belarus, which should take place no later than January 18, 2022.
