MP: Belarusian People's Congress will ensure quality control of decisions

MINSK ( BelTA) – The Belarusian People's Congress will ensure quality control of decisions taken by the current government institutions, Chairman of the Standing Commission on International Affairs of the House of Representatives Andrei Savinykh said in an interview to the ONT channel, BelTA has learned.

Andrei Savinykh noted that the bill on the Belarusian People's Congress, which is currently prepared, was actively discussed in the society. The Congress will consist of 1,200 delegates, a third of whom – the executive and judicial authorities, a third – representatives of deputies of all levels (i.e. people who have already been elected by the people), and a third – representatives of civil society.

“This Congress will be able to express its point of view and will vote for or against this or that document. There is no doubt that the Belarusian People's Congress is a step towards strengthening the position of the people's power, but not a substitute for the existing political institutions. It will be a kind of quality control of the decisions they take,” the MP said.

Andrei Savinykh supported the president's position that the Belarusian People's Congress would become a strong stabilizer of the Belarusian society, which would not allow a repetition of 2020 and would help discuss the main problems of the country.
