Belarus-Russian union's Constitutional Act has no provision for presidency


Mikalai Charhinets, Chairman of the Foreign Relations and National Security Committee at the Council of the Republic (the upper champer of the Belarusian parliament) tells the European Radio for Belarus that the issue of presidency of the 'union state' has not been resolved. Therefore, it is premature to speculate about Putin's presidency in the Belarus-Russia union state. Charhinets: "The commission left to to the presidents to decide whether the post of the president would be introduced in the union state. There are two options: to leave everything as it is (the Supreme State Council) or to introduce the posts of the president and vice president. Regarding the latter, we need to know the views of the presidents".
