Lukashenka told when he will leave the post of President of Belarus
Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko said he will not lead the state under the new constitution, reports "RIA News".
“I am not making any constitution for myself. I will not work with you as president with the new constitution. Therefore, do not worry, tolerate it calmly, ”the agency quotes the words of the Belarusian leader.
The President also said that he would never allow that “adopting the new constitution, someone falsified, or then someone fabricated the elections under the new constitution”.
“Even if I know that this is not what I wanted. Why? Because the Belarusian people must go through what they must go through. Better now, without a war. It is worse if this war is thrown on us, ”Lukashenka noted.
Earlier, he stated that the draft of the updated Constitution would be submitted for public discussion at the beginning of 2021. As the head of state specified, the third edition is already being prepared, since the two previous ones did not suit him.
