Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev has ordered to create a special commission to study possibility of new redistribution of powers between the president, parliament and the government, reports Tingrinews on Thursday.
“It is time to consider the redistribution of powers between the president, government and parliament. A special commission should examine these issue and make relevant proposals amending corresponding laws and possibly the constitution,” Nazarbayev said at the ceremonial meeting on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s independence.
According to the president, Kazakhstan has and will always have presidential system of governance as proclaimed in the constitution.
That’s not the first time Kazakh president emphasize the need for redistribution of powers in the country. In an interview with Bloomberg published end-September 2016, Mr Nazarbayev expressed his will to transfer more powers to the government and parliament in a gradual shift toward a “more liberal” political system.
