Event Held to Celebrate 30th Anniversary of Kyrgyz Constitution
A special event has been held in the Kyrgyz Republic to mark the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the country’s constitution. The ceremony was held in Parliament and was attended by Akylbek Japarov, the head of the Cabinet, as well as state and public figures and representatives from international organizations.
During a speech, the Speaker of Parliament, Nurlanbek Shakiev, highlighted the freedom of speech that exists in Kyrgyzstan. He acknowledged that there are those who criticize the parliament, including some members of parliament themselves, but that this is a sign of a healthy democracy.
Shakiev also noted that the Kyrgyz Constitution was adopted by 80% of the population, and that the country will continue to live in accordance with this law. However, he added that if the time comes for change, the constitution can be amended.
The event was a celebration of the progress made by Kyrgyzstan over the past 30 years, including the establishment of a democracy and the protection of fundamental human rights. It also served as a reminder of the importance of a free press and the need to protect freedom of speech in the country.
The Kyrgyz Republic is one of the few post-Soviet countries to have established a free and open parliament, and the event served as a tribute to the country’s commitment to democracy.
