Speaker of the Lower House of the Parliament of Kazakhstan Yerlan Koshanov said that in the near future the country plans to repeal the law on the first president of Kazakhstan — the elabsy (leader of the nation), which gave Nursultan Nazarbayev a number of powers and privileges.< /p>
“In the new amendments to the Constitution, the status of Elbasy is excluded, but the role of Nazarbayev as the founder of the state will remain. After we adopt these amendments, the law on the first president will also lose its force,” Koshanov said.
Recall that Nazarbayev headed Kazakhstan for 30 years. He resigned his powers in March 2019. Despite this, he retained a number of powers and privileges for himself, which were enshrined in the law on the first president of Kazakhstan – Elbasy.
According to this document, Nazarbayev cannot be held accountable for actions committed by him during the presidency. Among other things, he may not be arrested, detained, held in custody, interrogated or searched. All property of Nazarbayev and family members living with him is subject to inviolability.
