Lutsky: Belarus systematically moved towards Belarusian People’s Congress becoming constitutional body

Belarus was systematically moving towards giving the Belarusian People’s Congress the status of a constitutional body – as stated by Igor Lutsky, the Chairman of the Standing Commission on Education, Science, Culture and Social Development of the Council of the Republic, after a meeting of the upper house of Parliament, at which Sergei Sivets was unanimously supported by senators as a candidate nominated to the Presidium of the Belarusian People’s Congress.

According to Igor Lutsky, the implementation of the President’s initiative to give the Belarusian People’s Congress the status of a constitutional body indicates that we are gradually developing our political field, as well as our socio-political relations.

“The Belarusian People’s Congress will decide issues that determine our future: how we can maintain peace and where we will look in the future. The current Belarusian People’s Congress will have 400 representatives of civil society who went through elections in order to be nominated as delegates to the Belarusian People’s Congress. It must be said that both the National Security Concept and the Military Doctrine are documents about peace on our land. National security primarily depends on how we develop our economy, how we support our social sphere, how we raise children and educate them. The current threats are not only of a military nature, but also of a mental nature. These are threats to our traditional values, to our worldview,” Mr. Lutsky underlined.
