As the study showed, 88 percent of the respondents are generally aware of the ongoing process of collecting proposals for amendments and additions to the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan. This indicates the involvement of the general public in this political process taking place in the country, a sense of ownership and responsibility of citizens for the fate of the state.

The majority of respondents – 83 percent – support constitutional reforms and recognize the need to improve the Basic Law in today’s realities.

According to the results of the survey, 76 percent of respondents are aware of the activities of the Constitutional Commission.

Along with this, according to the data received, 47.2 percent of respondents consider it important for them to take the opportunity to participate in the process of improving the Constitution, while 24.1 percent of citizens have already made their proposals and additions to the current Constitution.

An analysis of the public opinion poll showed that, according to the respondents, the most pressing issues that should be reflected in the Constitution are the improvement of the public administration system, strengthening the provision of fundamental human rights and freedoms, strengthening the social protection of needy segments of the population (persons with disabilities, children, left without parental care, women, the elderly and pensioners who have lost their breadwinner), as well as increasing the role of young people in the life of the state and society.

The study also showed that protecting the environment and ensuring environmental rights are among the important tasks.
