Today in our capital was held a press conference on the preliminary results of the early presidential election of the Republic of Uzbekistan by the Bureau of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
As mentioned, the way the election is conducted directly depends on many aspects, especially the activity of the precinct election commission. This is where the effects of election laws come to light, and where the existing problems are reflected.
Analyzing the quality indicators of the members working in the precinct election commissions created for holding the presidential election, it is possible to see the positive results of the comprehensive democratic changes that are consistently implemented in the national election system.
This can be seen, first of all, in the number of women in the ranks of precinct election commissions, which have a total of 108 thousand 399 members, compared to the previous elections. If in the last parliamentary election in 2019, about 54,400 women worked in the precinct election commissions, then in this year’s presidential election, they are more than 2,500. 3827 of the chairmen of these commissions, 4199 of the deputy chairmen, and 5745 of the secretaries are women.
1,856 citizens with disabilities worked in the precinct election commissions. 19% of the members are specialists in information and communication technologies. These indicators fully correspond to the high international requirements for the composition of district and precinct election commissions.
