AMENDMENT OF THE LAW ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL IN KASACHSTAN

Also available in Deutsch

With the amendment of the law on the National Security Council in July 2018, the legal framework was completed in Kazakhstan that could enable the head of state to carry out a political transfer of power.

Observers of the Republic of Kazakhstan have been asking themselves for years: How long will President Nursultan Nazarbayev remain in office? The background to the question is, on the one hand, the almost three decades of government and, on the other hand, the age of the president, who turned 78 on 6 July. Since the late summer of 2016, when Islam Karimov died in office in neighbouring Uzbekistan, Nazarbayev has been the last remaining president to assume the high office in Soviet times.
