Lukashenka revives practice of plenary meetings of Communist Party's Central Committee
13:20, — Politics
The dictator wants to hold republican meetings at least every six months.
Lukashenka made this statement on December 10 at a republican meeting to discuss problems in the construction sector and improve the management of executive personnel, BelTA news agency reports.
He said the meeting was a milestone event and admitted he regards it “as a sort of a plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party in the Soviet times, when executive officials from all regions gathered to discuss and solve important problems of society”.
Belarus chose the format of republican meetings. “This format and the large number of participants can be explained by both the urgent character of the issues and the necessity of a comprehensive discussion of the real situation in important areas to reach every region and every organisation,” Lukashenka noted.
“The aim is to raise and offer solutions to the most urgent and significant problems of the development of economy and society both for today and the mid-term future,” Lukashenka said.
The ruler thinks such meetings should be held at least every six months to send society signals about current problems and the ways to solve them. Until now, the country hasn't had a suitable format for communication between the head of state and the country' executive officials at the highest level, according to him.
He said at today's meeting that serious problems of the whole construction industry concentrated in the housing construction sector.
“Most problems were created by executive officials, designers, construction companies and all of us. We had to set up an interdepartamental group with broad powers to overcome negative things. I emphasise, it is an interdepartamental group, because the negative processes in the construction sector were caused by uncoordinated actions, lack of discipline, mutual complaints of different agencies and narrow corporate interests,” he said.
