Local state power

In Uzbekistan, Councils of people's deputies led by mayors are considered to be representative bodies of power in provinces, districts, and towns (except towns with their district-based administration, as well as districts within towns). In accordance with the law of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On the local state power" of September 2, 1993, mayors of provinces, districts, towns are high-ranking officials who simultaneously lead both legislative and executive branches of power in the given area. The mayors of provinces and city of Tashkent report to President of the Republic of Uzbekistan and local Council of people's deputies.

The mayors of districts and towns report to an upper-level mayor and local Council of people's deputies. Mayors of provinces and city of Tashkent are appointed and dismissed by the President of Uzbekistan, and confirmed by Council of people's deputies of any given province, and city of Tashkent. Mayors of districts and towns are appointed and dismissed by mayors of provinces, and confirmed by local Council of people's deputies.

The work of the local state power bodies is regulated by the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On local state power", as well as other legislative acts of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

The work of Councils of people's deputies of districts, towns and mayors in the Republic of Karakalpakstan is regulated by Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On local state power", and other legislative acts of the Republic of Karakalpakstan.

In line with aforementioned laws, the local Councils of people's deputies and a mayor consider issues common for provinces, districts and towns. That is to say, those pertaining to social-economic development, execution of laws in places, other resolutions by Oliy Majlis, acts adopted by President and Cabinet of Ministries, as well as resolutions of upper-level Councils of people's deputies and mayors. They also coordinate relations between the state administration of the Republic of Uzbekistan and self-governing institutions of citizens, and public participation in local governing.

The local governments - within their authorities secured by law -lead local state, economic, social and cultural affairs. They approve plans for economic and social development, local budget, lead enterprises, organizations, and institutions within their competence, ensure the rule of law, state and public order, protection of citizens' rights, contribute to strengthening of country's defense capability.

Also, Councils of people's deputies are in charge of local affairs. They ensure that resolutions of upper-level bodies are properly executed. Besides, they lead lower-level Councils. Councils of people's deputies, mayors of provinces, districts, and towns are authorized - within their competence - to conclude agreements with state administration of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, other provinces, districts, towns of the Republic of Uzbekistan on issues of mutual interest, launch joint ventures, firms, and other.

The Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan revokes resolutions by Councils of people's deputies of provinces, districts, and towns, found contrary to the Constitution and laws of Uzbekistan, decrees, resolutions, and orders of the President of Uzbekistan. The President and Cabinet of Ministries of the Republic of Uzbekistan withhold and revoke legislative acts by mayors, found contrary to Constitution and laws, decrees, resolutions and orders by the President of Uzbekistan, governmental acts, as well as state interests of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Local Councils of people's deputies, as the most widespread institutions, consist of elected public representatives. According to the Law of Uzbekistan "On elections to the Councils of people's deputies of provinces, districts, and towns" of May 5,1994, the Council of people's deputies of the province and city of Tashkent take no more than 60 seats, of the town and district - no more than 30 seats in respective state power institutions.

The term of office of the Councils of people's deputies and mayors is five years.

The self-government institutions assist citizens to practice their right to participate in public and state administration, unite them with a purpose of tackling social and economic issues in their places of residency, and holding of cultural public events. Also, they assist bodies of state administration in execution of laws, decrees by President, resolutions by the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Councils of the people's deputies and mayors, respectively.

The self-government institutions are established based on the territorial principle. Mayors of districts and towns - upon proposal by citizens and further approval by local Councils of people's deputies -locate districts of their operation.

The system of elections, operations, and level of authorities of the self-government institutions are secured by the Constitution and Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On citizens' self-government institutions", and other legislative acts. The same holds true in the Republic of Karakalpakstan with additional legislative acts of the republic securing the general work by the self-government institutions.

The chairman of a gathering, upon approval by local Council of people's deputies, or mayor, if necessary, convenes gatherings of the people. The gatherings may also be convened by the Council of people's deputies, mayor, or upon initiative by no less than one third of citizens of 18 years of age and above with their constant residency in the given territory.
