President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev will address the Senate and the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis on January 24 at 11:00.
This new format in the history of Uzbekistan was established in 2017. The Message summarizes the results of activities implemented during the year and defines priorities for the coming year, identifies main tasks in domestic and foreign policy of the state and forwards legislative initiatives on topical issues. It has become a tradition to name the year in the Message, which determines the course of development of a certain sphere of society's life. This political event was held for the second time on December 28, 2018.
Today, the initiatives and tasks set out in the Messages of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan to the Oliy Majlis are being consistently implemented. With their comprehensive agenda and large-scale tasks, these program reports arouse great interest among public in Uzbekistan and abroad. This format helps to improve the efficiency of government agencies.
As it is known, on December 22, 2019, elections to the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis and Local Councils of people's deputies were held. They were held on the basis of Electoral Code adopted for the first time in the history of Uzbekistan, under the motto “New Uzbekistan – New Elections” and demonstrated that political consciousness and culture of citizens is increasing, their sense of belonging to the fate of the country is growing, and democratic principles are becoming more widely accepted in society.
Following the elections, the Central Election Commission registered 150 deputies of the Legislative Chamber and 97 members of the Senate of the Oliy Majlis. In particular, 13 senators were appointed by the Presidential Decree of January 17, 2020. Thus, a new composition of Uzbekistan’s legislative authority has been formed.
The Head of the state will address the new Parliament.
