Council of People's Commissars of Belarus
The Council of People's Commissars of Belarus was established part of the governing apparatus of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR). It was formed by the All-Byelorussian Congress of Soviets and functioned alongside the Central Executive Committee. Under the 1919 constitution the Council of People's Commissars belongs to the general management of the affairs of the BSSR. The Council of People's Commissars was empowered to issue decrees, orders and instructions, and to generally take whatever measures necessary for the proper and prompt management of the state. However any decisions of great general political importance were to be submitted for ratification by the Congress of Soviets, which could over-rule the decisions of the Council of People's Commissars.
