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.Remind me with Google Calendar
