LATVIAN JOURNALIST: UZBEKISTAN GRADUALLY MOVES FROM A STRONG STATE TO A STRONG CIVIL SOCIETY
On the occasion of the 23rd anniversary of the Constitution, our country continues to receive congratulations from representatives of political, business, scientific, academic, expert-analytical and journalistic circles of foreign countries.
Thus, Chief editor of “Free City” international journal (Latvia) Tatyana Fast has shared her views and assessments political, legal and socio-economic reforms carried out in Uzbekistan, the role of the Constitution in their implementation in an interview with “Jahon” Information Agency.
- The Constitution of the country has been complemented by a number of important amendments over the past five years, which are aimed mainly at further democratic reforms in the country. Some of these can be considered as measures providing for the transfer of the powers of the executive branch of the legislative. As a result of these reforms, parliamentary and presidential elections respectively were held in Uzbekistan in 2014 and 2015, which opened a new page in the development of the country.
I have been among foreign journalists covering the election of the President of Uzbekistan in March 2015, it was held at the highest organizational level. Foreign observers have witnessed the fact that Uzbekistan’s population treat with respect and responsibility to the electoral law.
The growing role of mahalla and its credibility with local people can be very highly assessed in this context. This important institution of civil society plays an important role in the country’s electoral system.
It can be judged that the process from a strong state to a strong civil society is occurring consistently by these and other significant transformations that taking place in Uzbekistan.
It gives me great pleasure to congratulate Uzbekistan’s people with the 23rd anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution and wish to reach the highest milestone in building a developed state and society!
