Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Political Council of UzLiDeP Aktam Khaitov opened the event and said that the content of the updated Constitution is aimed at more stable development of Uzbekistan. He noted that implementation of the constitutional reform through a referendum based on the opinion and support of our citizens will create a thorough ground for the people’s Constitution to be an expression of the will of the people.

He emphasized that our Basic Law, which is created by our people today in proportion to the changes taking place in society, will be a reliable guarantee of our more comfortable and prosperous life tomorrow.
Senator, People’s Poet of Uzbekistan Mahmud Toir expressed his opinion on the fact that the new edition of the Constitution is the people’s constitution. He drew attention to the fact that the blessing of peace and the Basic Law, which is ruling in the country, is making people even more cohesive at a time when the dangerous life in the countries of the world separates children from their fathers, women from their beloved husbands, and mothers from their children. He recited his works on the happiness of New Uzbekistan, which lies in unity and cohesiveness.
Deputies of local councils of people’s deputies noted that the proposals made based on the program goals and tasks of the party were reflected in the draft law.

The Rector of Chirchik State Pedagogical University Gafurjon Muhammedov mentioned that extensive efforts are being made to ensure that Uzbekistan ranks among the 30 countries with the highest rating in the world in terms of the level of education and intellectual development. In recent years, the achievement of this ambitious goal has been reflected in the program of UzLiDeP, and accordingly, the norms related to education and science have been increased by almost 2 times in the updated Constitution. He emphasized that enshrining the norm that “everyone has the right to free higher education based on the selection in the state educational institutions” in the new version of the Constitution serves to ensure the guarantee of this task at the constitutional level. He said that it is commendable that the right to free higher education in state education institutions is guaranteed by the state to support talented young people in the context of this provision. He called for active participation in the national referendum without being indifferent to the country’s bright prospects.

He urged the youth to take part in the referendum without being indifferent to the fate of the country and their future, and to stick together in the path of the noble task of building New Uzbekistan.
