Topic - Belarusian Government

The politics of Belarus takes place in a framework of a presidential republic, whereby the President of Belarus is the head of state. Executive power is exercised by the government, in its top sits a prime minister, appointed by the President. Legislative power is vested in the bicameral parliament, the National Assembly, however the president may enact decrees that are executed the same way as laws, for undisputed time. Belarus's declaration of independence on 27 July 1990, did not stem from long-held political aspirations but from reactions to domestic and foreign events. Ukraine's declaration of independence, in particular, led the leaders of then Belarusian SSR to realize that the Soviet Union was on the brink of dissolving, which it did. - Source: Wikipedia
