Lukashenko on new Constitution: Changes should be within law

MINSK (BelTA) – Any changes should be carried out within the legal framework, otherwise the country will face serious consequences, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting of the Security Council with the participation of regional leaders by a video link, BelTA learned.

“Once again, I would like to reiterate: changes that some want should be within the law. Changes must be spelled out in the Constitution. This work continues. It will be stepped up. How fast the work on the Constitution goes will depend on people's support. With the Constitution in place, we will be able to have discussions about the re-election of the bodies of authorities,” the Belarusian leader said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized that there is the legal and regulatory framework in the country, the current Constitution. “We should faithfully adhere to it. I have no other means to keep the country within the legal framework, in compliance with this Constitution. Otherwise, we will be governed by others,” the president said.
