– The elections taking place on the basis of openness and transparency show that under the leadership of President Islam Karimov of Uzbekistan it has been achieved significant results on the formation of a democratic constitutional state and a free civil society. A striking example is the free will of the voters. Taking full advantage of the media in learning about the essence and goals of the election programs of political parties and candidates is important in a wide involvement of the population in the process. At the polling stations it has been created all conditions for the participation of the media.

– The programs of political parties participating in the elections reflect the socio-economic issues related to further development and growth of the welfare of the people. Having been at the polling stations, we have witnessed the active voting electorate. In discussions with representatives of political parties and observers we have learned about their programs and purposes, the opinion about the election.
I am pleased to note that active preparations have been carried out for the elections and this is evidenced by the activeness of population.
I came to Termez five years ago. Glad to see great creative work of transformation and change carried out during this time. All this is the result of successive reforms in Uzbekistan.
