Despite the fact that the position of the Republic of Uzbekistan has significantly improved in 33 out of 44 indicators of the Rule of Law Index published by the international non-governmental organization “World Justice Project” in 2017-2020, the situation has not changed on 11 indicators of this index.

In particular, the role of Uzbekistan remains stable in such indicators as the effective limitation of the powers of the government by the judiciary, the freedom of the judiciary from corruption, and the independence of the judiciary from the improper influence of the government.

This requires practical work to ensure the independence of the judiciary in our country and to protect the judiciary from external influences
