Lukashenko talks about amendments to Constitution, referendum
The referendum on amendments to the Constitution will be organized as promised. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement as he appointed a number of officials of municipal authorities on 20 September, BelTA has learned.

The head of state reminded about the organization of the referendum and stressed that municipal authorities will also help organize the process. “Everyone will have his or her functions but there will be one goal,” he said.

“Certainly, it will not be easy for heads of the district administrations and personnel of the power vertical. There is a referendum ahead of us. We will have to organize it, convince people although we will not put extra efforts into it. We will just tell the people what changes await us due to amendments to the Constitution so that we would not be accused of clinging wildly to power with hands that have gone blue as I often say, so that we would not be accused of remodeling the Constitution to meet our own interests. Nobody is going to remake anything for their own needs. We will organize the referendum as we've promised,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.

Once again Aleksandr Lukashenko pointed out that government officials have to work with people: “If we want support from the population, from the Belarusian people, then we have to work with the people. These are the tasks.”
