Presidential Administration revamped in Belarus

One third of the staff of the Presidential Administration will be cut. The corresponding decree was signed on February 13 by Alexander Lukashenko.

It is expected that this measure will make the work of the main political headquarters of the head of state more efficient.

In particular, the institute of presidential assistants is being reformed. Two new posts are introduced.

The assistants will be in charge of two different directions. The first is the legislative and judicial and the second is the credit and financial one.

In addition, the scope of the powers of the President's press secretary has been expanded.

The need to optimize the structure was raised by the head of state at the beginning of last week.

Alexander Lukashenko is sure that only those who want to work and benefit the country should remain in this structure. As the main political headquarters of the head of state, the Presidential Administration is tasked with accumulating the most advanced ideas and being a powerful ideological center, where staff will have the necessary knowledge and work as a team.
