Posted by Info on 14/11/2010

Uzbek President Islam Karimov has introduced draft legislation that would loosen the government’s grip on the media, a bill to make policy making more transparent.

“The bill… should ensure that the population and social groups have access to information about [government] decisions and primarily about the decisions concerning the rights, liberties and legal interests of the citizens.”

He also proposed a bill to create a system of public oversight to monitor how government decisions are being implemented.
