The Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan on 30 November considered the priority tasks set by the President for the parliament in his recently presented Concept of deepening democratic reforms.

The deputies said the head of the state had put forward a wide-scale and deeply reasoned program of expanding democratic reforms and formation of civil society.

They especially highlighted the President’s legislative initiatives to amend the Constitution and adopt new laws to improve the balance of the powers among the three subjects of state authority – the President as the head of the state, the legislative and the executive authorities.

For the first time in Uzbekistan, a new order is going to be introduced when the Prime Minister’s candidature is proposed by the political party that won the majority of seats at the elections to the Legislative Chamber or several parties which have equal deputy seats.

Another novelty is granting the parliament the right to issue a no-confidence vote to the Premier, which would lead to the resignation of the whole Cabinet. These measures will significantly increase the role of the parties and the parliament on the whole in solving the most important state issues, the deputies said.

During the discussion, the members of the lower house proposed to develop a set of measures to implement the President’s initiatives and improve the parliament’s activity.

In particular, they called for searching new forms and methods of work of the committees and the fractions, expanding the interaction of the parliament with other bodies, improving the legislative activities and learning the leading foreign experience of law-making.
