Local Communities Day in Kyrgyzstan Date in the current year: October 30, 2016

Local Communities Day in Kyrgyzstan Local Communities Day is an official holiday in Kyrgyzstan celebrated on the last Sunday in October. It was established in 2003 within the framework of the program of state support to local self-government.

The development of the system of local self-government in Kyrgyzstan began after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. In 1991, the Law “On Local Self-Government in the Kyrgyz Republic” was adopted. It established the new norms and rules of local self-government, which were fundamentally different from the old Soviet practice of centralized government.

The system of local self-government in Kyrgyzstan was officially outlined in one of the sections of the Constitution of Kyrgyzstan adopted in 1993. This section was stipulated by the European Charter of Local Self-Government adopted by the Council of Europe in 1985. The new Constitution of Kyrgyzstan that entered into force in 2010 also contains a section on local self-government.

In 1996, the Association of Local Self-Government Bodies was founded. It became the first organization of its kind in Central Asia. The Association significantly contributes to the development of local self-government in Kyrgyzstan. Finally, Local Communities Day was created in 2003 to raise awareness of local self-government issues.
