A report on the draft law stressed that the right to establish associations is one of the fundamental rights of citizens provided by the Constitution. During specific periods of history, the Party issued appropriate guidelines and documents relating to civil associations, guaranteeing the Party's leadership and the State's management over these bodies. A number of associations have actively contributed to national protection and socio-economic development while ensuring their members' legitimate rights and interests. The report also pointed to shortcomings in existing legal regulations on associations in comparison with the Constitution's related content and the country's international integration. The draft law, comprising eight chapters and 38 articles, demonstrates the State's viewpoint on ensuring and creating favourable conditions for citizens to practice their right to establish associations in line with the Constitution, completing the related legal system and enhancing the State's management over associations, the report added.
