by December 1, 2016 Legal

The law on the establishment of a new national holiday – the Day of the First President of Kazakhstan was adopted in December 2011 at a meeting of the Senate of the Parliament of Kazakhstan.

“First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev is a founder of a new independent state, ensured its unity and defense of the Constitution, rights and freedoms of a man and citizen. First President’s achievements inspire huge, genuine respect and trust of the people”, the conclusion of the Senate on the bill reads.

We remind that a historic prerequisite for this is an event held on December 1, 1991, as a result of the first popular election of the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev has received the support of 98.7% voters.

One of his first moves was the signing of the law to rename the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic to the Republic of Kazakhstan on 10 December 1991 and on 16 December 1991 the Supreme Council declared the independence of Kazakhstan.

We note that the weighted domestic and foreign policy, conducted in Kazakhstan under the leadership of the Head of State, has ensured the creation of a modern, dynamically developing state with the socially-oriented economy.

The achievements of the country for 25 years of the independent development show that people’s choice was the right one – President Nursultan Nazarbayev has completely fulfilled his vow, he gave and gives all his power for the construction of new, strong and independent Kazakhstan.

The holiday of the First President of the country combines the social and economic importance for every citizen of Kazakhstan. The relatively young country has reached the world level, gained recognition in the international arena.
