Kazakhstan’s ruling Amanat party received 53.9% of votes in a snap parliamentary vote, official data showed on Monday (20 March). This gave President Kassym Jomart Tokayev a mandate to reform the oil-rich country in line with his social justice goals.

Although no opposition parties were represented in Sunday’s elections, Western criticism was less severe than usual as Europe and America seek to strengthen relations with Russia’s neighbors that have been shaken since Moscow’s invasion.

OSCE observers stated that reforms implemented before the vote addressed some of OSCE’s previous recommendations and provided “increased choice for voters”, but further changes were necessary.

Ükski opositsioonipartei ei saanud end enne valimisi registreerida, vaatamata registreerimisnõuete, näiteks nõutavate allkirjade arvu ja päritolu formaalsele leevendamisele.

Vähemalt üks opositsioonirühm väitis, et valitsus keeldus teadlikult selle registreerimisest.

Kasahstani ametnikud ütlesid, et OSCE märkis nii positiivseid kui ka murettekitavaid muutusi. See julgustas neid püüdlema suurema demokraatia poole.

“Such comments also important given the geopolitical backdrop of these elections, and the unprecedented tensions that the region and world have been experiencing since last year,” stated the official on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly.

The election of the lower chamber completes the shake-up in Central Asia’s political elite. It all began with Tokayev’s ex-patriot and predecessor Nursultan Nagayev being forced to resign in the early 2021 midst violent unrest.

Tokajev (69) on sellest ajast peale lubanud tagada rikkuse õiglasema jaotuse oma suures, kuid hõredalt asustatud maavarade ja süsivesinike poolest rikkas riigis.

Russia, a major political player in the Central Asian region, and Kazakhstan’s largest trading partner, welcomed Tokayev’s election results as an endorsement of his economic and political reforms.

Maria Zakharova, Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman, said: “We reaffirm in principle our commitment to the further strengthening multifaceted Russian-Kazakh cooperation through the parliamentary system.”
