National leader

Science reveals and proves a reality that does not depend on anyone’s desire or will. According to the famous Arab philosopher Al-Farabi, the state is created at the expense of people belonging to the upper class. Each state has a national development system that determines development paths, political, social, scientific and cultural activities, as well as a national development strategy that determines the nature and sequence of work to build this system. In conditions when the political processes taking place in the world are complex in form and contradictory in content, the characteristic features of the policy being implemented are of very important theoretical and at the same time practical significance.
