Civil service in Belarus?
Will a bill on alternative service be passed in Belarus? An international forum on the issue is being held in Minsk. Its aim is to foster the solution of the issue by encouraging the Belarusian Parliament members to consider the introduction of the civil service in the near future. The forum, arranged by Mikhas Pashekvich, leader of the campaign 'For Alternative Civil Service in Belarus', is attended by representatives of NGOs from the majority CIS countries.
'I do hope it will contribute to the drafting of a new bill on the civil service,' says Mr Pashkevich.
According to Mikhas Pashkevich, the solution of the problem can be fostered by dragging public attention, including that from the international community.
