Lukashenka: "Citizens Should Be Partners Of Authorities, Not Suppliants"; He Promises That State Will Try To Provide People With New Quality Of Life

"Citizens should be partners of the authorities, rather than their suppliants, president Alexander Lukashenko said today during a meeting focusing on the issues of improving the state management system.

"We have promised to build a country for its people and clear the government system from red tape", he stressed. However, often government officials work as they used to denying the rigid instructions of the leadership of the country. "I warn you that no one will be left in his office if instructions will not be fulfilled in regard to making a normal country - comfortable for everyone to live in", the Belarusian leader said.

The president has stressed that the issue is "a matter of principal" for him; an issue which in terms of its urgency stands next to the industrial performance set for the five-year term. "One must not let us to reach the production targets but leave the country as it is – overburdened with red tape", Alexander Lukashenko explained.

He gave a task to toughen the control over implementation of the instructions to eradicate red tape. He gave an instruction to simplify the state management system and exclude any doubling of management functions.

According to the head of state, the record-high turnout at the presidential election showed "a stunning support" for the authorities. This is why the president deems it inadmissible to “expose to red tape people who give such immense support to the authorities"."

“We should provide people with a new quality of life”, the president said."
