About the election

All the four parties in the outgoing legislature, reportedly close to President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, were returned to the 150-member Legislative Chamber along with the Ecological Party (see note). The President’s Liberal Democratic Party of Uzbekistan (O'zLiDeP) remained the largest party with 53 seats followed by the National Revival Democratic Party (Milliy Tiklanish), led by Mr. Alisher Qodirov. The Social Democratic Party (Adolat) came third with 24 seats, up from 20 in 2014 – 2015, and has two more seats than the People's Democratic Party. The number of women has doubled to 48 in the new legislature.

On 20 January 2020, the newly elected Legislative Chamber re-elected Mr. Nurdinjon Ismoilov as its Speaker. The following day, the Senate (indirectly elected on 16 and 17 January) also re-elected Ms. Tanzila Norboeva as its Chairwoman. On 22 January, Parliament approved a new Cabinet led by Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov.

During election campaigning, the five parties focused on healthcare and education systems, unemployment and environmental issues.

Note:

The 2019 elections were the first to be held under the new electoral code of June 2019 which abolished 15 seats reserved for the Ecological Movement, which has now been registered as the Ecological Party. The party retained its 15 seats in 2019. The 2019 Electoral Code retained the 30 per cent candidate quota for women. All parties exceeded the quota in 2019, bringing the percentage of women candidates to 41.3 per cent.
