Belarus carries out constitutional referendum

Belarus' referendum on constitutional changes has been declared valid with more than 50% of the voters attending polling stations by midday, the local news agency Belta reported on Sunday.
The proposed amendments, if accepted by the Belarusians, would mean a drastic change to the country's government structure. The new People's Assembly - a council of the Belarus' government with industry leaders and top officials - would be responsible for approving key state documents, including military doctrine and security policies.
The role of a president would officially weaken, and a presidential term would be limited to only two five-year periods.
