Chairman of the Central Council of the People’s Democratic Party of Uzbekistan H.Ketmonov, head of the Scientific Enlightenment Memorial Complex named after Islam Karimov, T.Shirinov and others noted that Islam Karimov made an invaluable contribution to the development of our country’s political system, ensured establishment of democratic principles in our society, was a consistent supporter of development of a multi-party system.
Development of the national parliamentary system is inextricably linked with the name of Islam Karimov. In particular, the first reforms carried out in the parliamentary sphere were reflected in the elections to the Supreme Council that were held in February-March 1990. Proposal on formation of a bicameral parliament was also forwarded by the First President of our country Islam Karimov.
Contribution of the First President of our country to the formation of foundations of the national legislation is also enormous. He is rightfully the author of the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which fully meets all democratic requirements and international criteria.
“Founder of independent Uzbekistan” documentary film was also shown at the conference.
