Some ministers have decided to leave their posts for health reasons.
On July 4, Lukashenka appointed a new government. Prior to this decision, he held a meeting with chairman of the "council of the republic" Natallia Kachanava, chairman of the "house of representatives" Uladzimir Andreichanka, head of the governor's administration Ihar Siarheyanka and state secretary of the Security Council Andrei Raukou, BelTA informs.
Lukashenka says that new ministers have already come to the government, and the former ones have been replaced either at their own will in connection with the transfer to a new job, or, in rare cases, for failure to ensure the relevant results of their work area.
"The people simply went to less demanding jobs because of sickness, for other reasons. And for six months we have been forming a new government," - he says.
"Those who can't cope with such volumes today in this crisis period, of course, should be replaced and sent to another job," - Lukashenka explains.
Earlier, experts said that coronavirus would be spreading among the Belarusian nomenclature because of absence of quarantine in the country.
