Tajikistan СSOs demand a seat in parliament and the rights to participate in monitoring of investments

29/12/2009 20:51:07


Leaders of nongovernmental organizations have held the Second Tajikistan national NGO forum in Dushanbe where declared their willingness and desire to participate in the political life of the country. On the forum have been invited deputies of the parliament of the republic, representatives of the Executive Office of the President of the country, as well as international organizations. Also 40 heads of NGOs from all regions of Tajikistan have arrived to the forum.

The adviser of the Tajikistan President Muhabbatsho Ruzadorov has highly appreciated the results of activity of domestic NGOs. «It is pleasant that a lot of people from all regions of the country are employed and involved in the solution of common problems, - he has noted. - we are very satisfied with the work of these organizations (NGOs) and will aspire to give them any support».

The deputy of the lower chamber of parliament Olimjon Salimov has noticed that NGOs are always in the spotlight of the state, including the parliament of the country and which see NGOs as good partners. «NGO’s employees are true patriots as they make major contribution to the improvement of life activity of the country in diverse spheres», - he believes.

However, NGO’s leaders themselves consider that they are deprived of the authorities’ attention. Shamsiddin Karimov, the head of Tajikistan national NGO association has told: «In 2002 a meeting of the President with NGO’s representatives took place. It became an event for us and gave impulse to the development of NGO sector. However we think that a lot of time has passed since then, and it is time for the next dialogue between the head of the state and NGOs».

«It is time to pay attention to the following situation: Tajikistan receives a large quantity of investments, grants and credits, allocated by international community. However, no one of the country’s essential problems have been solved yet. Meanwhile, pursuant to the Parisian declaration, one of the five conditions according to which the investments shall be allocated is taking into account NGO’s opinion. That condition is not followed in our country. It is time for Civil Society to effectively participate in monitoring of investments. NGOs will acquire authority and influence just after they will have an opportunity to name, along with the government, priorities of needs to our donors», - has noted in turn the head of NGO Jahon (World) Shahlo Juraeva.

«In some neighboring republics – like Kirghizia, Russia, Azerbaijan, and even in Afghanistan, NGO’s representatives have seats in parliaments, and take direct part in lawmaking activity. We think that we are not worse and are ready to this activity, - Shamsiddin Karimov has told. – We also talk about that issue in our Address to the President. It is noticed there that there is a certain positive will of the republic’s management on the development of Civil Society institutes. But we ask the President to give particular attention to NGO sector on the forthcoming elections and to use the practical and scientific potentials of NGOs».

Today there are 1,500 NGOs in Tajikistan that is much less than in comparable by quantity of population and territory Kirghizia where active around 4,000 NGOs. NGO’s range have reduced almost twice since the re-registration of NGOs, held by the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Tajikistan in the beginning of 2005. NGO’s condition has worsened after many donors and other organization which allocated grants left Tajikistan. The recently adopted program on state order did not support NGOs. For rallying of NGO’s numbers and mutual support the Tajikistan national NGO association was founded which held one a half years ago its first forum. On that forum were adopted the program of development and the code of main principles of NGO’s activity. There already was declared a desire of the most prepared NGO’s leaders to be presented in the elected bodies and reserve of the managerial personnel. But till this moment any changes therein has not occurred yet.
