In the interests of the people

the Constitution of Turkmenistan begins with the words, “We, the people of Turkmenistan...” The very concept of “people” as a political and legal category is the core of our Constitution, encompassing all its components. According to the Basic Law, the people are bearers of sovereignty and the only source of power in Turkmenistan, exercising their power directly or through representative bodies. It is this principle enshrined in the Constitution that relates to universal principles of humane value and is inherent in most modern democratic constitutions. This means that the state power in our country is exercised in the interests of the people and exclusively by the bodies authorised by the Constitution of Turkmenistan and the legislation adopted on its basis.
