Since the election of the new president of the Republic of Uzbekistan (2016), the republic has faced sweeping transformations. The reforms have targeted civic, economic, as well as many government structures. On the eve of elections set to take place on Dec. 22, many wonder if now is the right time to expand reforms into the parliamentary arena, which until now has changed little. This talk raises key questions regarding the possible future of the division of power in Uzbekistan and relations between the government and political parties
