Conduction of preparatory work for the Presidential elections require a great responsibility from all of us.
— Of course, we are facing great challenges in connection with the preparation for the elections. Pre-election staff is established in Tashkent city and district councils of the party. It is essential that deputies would constantly inform the representatives of the electorate about the initiatives of the party organizations about the carried out work, — said deputy of Tashkent city Kengash of people’s deputies, member of the group of the People’s Democratic Party of Uzbekistan Nigora Eshmetova. — In addition, the actual task is the wide explanation among the population of the essence and content of the laws «On guarantees of electoral rights of citizens» and «On elections of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan». As it is known, every citizen has the right to elect and be elected, and this right of voter for free expression is being successfully carried out in our country. It is required to increase civic responsibility and political participation of our citizens. 73 polling stations are organized in the capital.

We must take all measures in order to use their potential and opportunities. I think their experience is of great importance in enhancing awareness and advocacy. The primary organizations are undoubtedly one of the main means of improving the credibility of the political party in society. Therefore, we must maintain a constant dialogue with the population, increase the quantity and improve the quality of activities carried out during the election campaign, to establish the effectiveness of training in the system of political and civic education.
