The rules of parliamentary ethics established in Uzbekistan
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The legislation establishes strict compliance by deputies with rules of conduct. These rules apply to each deputy, regardless of whether he acts in the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis or local Kengashes.
These rules determine the behavioral, moral and ethical principles, as well as the rules of conduct of the deputy, mandatory in the exercise of his powers.
For example, a deputy of a local Kengash cannot use his status to the detriment of the legitimate interests of citizens, society and the state.
Also, a deputy of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis speaking in the media, at press conferences, other public events, public statements, commenting on the activities of state and other bodies, organizations, officials and citizens, is not entitled to use rude, insulting expressions and statements, to admit unfounded accusations detrimental to their honor and dignity, to use knowingly false and inaccurate information, to call for illegal actions.
If the deputy’s public statements contain statements that degrade the honor and dignity of citizens, the deputy must publicly acknowledge the incorrectness or inaccuracy of his statements and apologize to the citizen whose honor, dignity and business reputation were affected, unless otherwise provided by law.
In case of violation of deputy ethics, the question of the deputy’s behavior will be considered by the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis and the corresponding Kengash of People’s Deputies.
