On November 6, 1994, the Constitution of the Republic of Tajikistan was adopted at a national referendum, which played a huge role in the establishment of an independent democratic Tajikistan and ensuring peace on Tajik soil. In honor of this event, a public holiday was established in the country - the Constitution Day of the Republic of Tajikistan, which was officially included in the list of state dates of Tajikistan in 1998. The Constitution in Tajikistan is a fundamental document that defines the foundations of the state system, the procedure for the formation and functioning of the main state bodies of legislative, executive and judicial power, local self-government bodies, the election procedure, as well as the powers of the head of state, the fundamental rights, freedoms and duties of citizens, the procedure for amending to the Constitution and the possibility of its revision.

The main law of the country itself, after its adoption in 1994, was later supplemented and amended three times. This happened in 1999, 2003 and 2016. The Constitution of Tajikistan proclaims the country an independent, socially oriented state, recognizing the main value - human rights and freedoms, defining citizens as the main source of sovereignty. This is confirmed by her last article, which affirms the inviolability and impossibility of changing such foundations of the state as the republican form of government, territorial integrity, legal, secular and social essence of the state.
