Belarus leader Lukashenko to discuss transfer of some powers -Belta

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday that he plans to meet with the government and local authorities next week to explore the prospect of passing some presidential responsibilities to them, according to the state-run Belta news agency.

It was unclear what powers Lukashenko was referring to at the time. Last year, Lukashenko faced the largest protests of his 27-year tenure, but he survived them with Russia’s help.
