The Supreme Soviet of Belarus (1991–1996) was the immediate continuation of the Supreme Soviet of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR Supreme Soviet) (1938–1991), which it its turn was the successor of the Central Executive Committee of Byelorussian SSR (1920–1938), and all of them were the highest organs of state power in Belarus during 1920–1990.[1] During 1990–1996 it functioned as permanent parliament.

Since 1994 the head of state has been President of Belarus, with the executive power being the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus. Since 1996 the National Assembly of Belarus has been the parliament.
