TurkPA to observe parliamentary elections in Kazakhstan
January 24, 2016

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Erlan Idrissov in his letter addressed to TurkPA Secretary General Jandos Asanov extends invitation to TurkPA member-parliaments to come with an observer mission to the early elections to the Majilis (Lower House) of the Parliament of Kazakhstan to be held on 20th March, 2016.

Earlier, on 20th January President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev dissolved the Majilis and appointed early elections for the 20th March of the current year. The decision of the Head of State is based on the appeal of the Majilis of the Parliament of Kazakhstan to the President of Kazakhstan made on 13th January, 2016 to appoint early elections due to global economic crisis that is negatively affecting the country’s economy as well as other challenges the international community currently is facing. Prior to his decision Kazakhstan’s President has held a number of consultations with the high dignitaries of Kazakhstan.
