After months of unrest following his disputed re-election in August, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has hinted that he may step down after being in power for 26 years. In a statement on Friday, the 66-year-old said said the country's constitution should be reformed to reduce the considerable powers of the presidency, as per report. Handing the current system to an "unknown", as he put it, would spell trouble.
