News : Hotline Operates During 5th All-Belarusian People’s Assembly
Minsk, Belarus, June 23, 2016 -- Belarusians were able to receive updates and make suggestions during the 5th All-Belarusian People’s Assembly via hotlines. The call centre, set up in the Palace of the Republic, was running for two days, receiving on average fifty calls per hour. The total number of calls amounts to about 500.
The main issue addressed by one fifth of the callers was public utilities. About 20 percent called regarding construction and housing issues and 10 percent were concerned about social security issues. Almost 40% of the calls were received from Minsk.
Telegrams received from all Belarusian regions this year demonstrate that people from across the country were closely following the work of the Assembly.
The results of the call centre’s work were summed up at a briefing, during which all the questions were answered by respective ministers.
