Bektas Beknazarov, Deputy Chairman of the Senate of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan, took part in the international round table held by the Supreme Judicial Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan on the topic Prospects for personnel policy in the judicial system.
B. Beknazarov emphasized that issues of improving legislative acts on the modernization of the judicial system and updating judges have been repeatedly included in the agenda of the Senate.
On February 21, 2019, the Constitutional Law On Amendments and Additions to the Constitutional Law On the Judicial System and Status of Judges of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Law On Amendments and Additions to Some Legislative Acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on the Modernization of the Judicial System “.
These laws are aimed at further strengthening the principle of independence of judges, strengthening the legal, organizational and financial guarantees of its implementation, said the Senate Vice-Speaker.
He informed that the Senate also introduced a significant part of the amendments to the Law On the Higher Judicial Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan, significantly expanding the competence of this state body in the selection for presentation to the appointment and dismissal of judicial personnel.
Speaking at the opening of a new session of the Parliament of the country, in the Address to the people of Kazakhstan, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev noted that the right of a judge to make a decision based on the law and internal convictions remains unshakable. This gives confidence to the current judges to work without looking at anyone and be responsible for the legality and validity of the decisions made by the court, B. Beknazarov noted.
The Senate Vice-Speaker noted that despite the positive results, the level of legal proceedings does not reach the qualitative characteristics and objectives of the modern state of law.
The reason for this is the existing problems in the judicial system, most of which concern the judiciary itself.
B. Beknazarov expressed confidence that today’s discussion of the prospects for personnel policy will tell the right ways and methods of solving these problems.
