Belarus President Lukashenko Seeks Political ‘Modernization’

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said political parties may be allowed to gain a greater role in parliament in the next four years, hinting at limited reform of a system that offers no representation for opposition groups.

“I would like this new parliament to start some modernization of our political system,” Lukashenko said during the final session of the outgoing parliament today in the capital, Minsk.
