Powers and tasks

The Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan serves as the leader of the Cabinet of Ministers, overseeing and managing its operations. This individual holds personal accountability for the Cabinet's effectiveness, presides over its meetings, endorses decisions, and represents the Cabinet in international relations on behalf of the President of Uzbekistan. The Prime Minister engages in negotiations, signs intergovernmental treaties, agreements, and memoranda, subject to the president's approval. Responsibilities also include the allocation of duties among deputy prime ministers, making decisions on non-Cabinet meeting matters related to state and economic management, and proposing Cabinet members to the president after Legislative Chamber approval.

Additionally, the Prime Minister suggests appointments and dismissals of regional governors to the president, coordinates the activities of government bodies, resolves disagreements, and presents an annual report to both chambers of the Oliy Majlis on socio-economic development and priorities. The Prime Minister issues orders and recommendations within their purview, keeps the president informed, and temporarily assumes presidential duties within Uzbekistan when the president is abroad. In the Prime Minister's absence, the First Deputy Prime Minister or, by consensus, one of the Deputy Prime Ministers temporarily fulfills their responsibilities.
