Tashkent hosted an international scientific and practical conference on “Current issues and priority directions for implementing the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan in new edition”.
The event was organized by the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Uzbekistan, together with the Ministry of Justice, the Institute of Legislation and Legal Policy, and the Academy of Public Administration.
Chairman of the Constitutional Court Mirzo Ulugbek Abdusalomov, Director of the Institute of Legislation and Legal Policy Mir Akbar Rakhmonkulov, and others noted that the renewed Constitution created a political and legal basis for the implementation of the Development Strategy of New Uzbekistan. This document identified priority areas at a historically significant stage in the development of national statehood.
The decree of the President of Uzbekistan “On priority measures for the implementation of the renewed Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan” of May 10, 2023, established measures for the unconditional and full implementation of the Constitution.
The conference took place in two sessions. The opinion of experts was heard on “The basic principles of the renewed Constitution are an important legal basis for the strategy for building a New Uzbekistan”.
In particular, using the example of the experience of the Republic of Kazakhstan, it was analyzed that constitutional reform is an essential factor in the development of the legal system.
It was noted that the definition of Uzbekistan as a secular state strengthens tolerance and harmony between representatives of different religions and confessions, the independent functioning of religious associations, and freedom of religion and belief.
The second session of the conference was devoted to ensuring human rights and interests as the primary goal of implementing the renewed Constitution.
The participants discussed issues of direct application of the norms of the Constitution in the administration of justice and a comparative analysis of the constitutional and legal framework for ensuring state guarantees of the administration of justice.
At the conference, foreign and international experts highly appreciated the renewed Constitution.
