In 1995, the Constitutional Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan was established. It is the collective authority of constitutional oversight in Kazakhstan. It consists of seven members: the Chairperson, two members appointed by the President, two members appointed by the Senate, and two members appointed by the Majilis. They are endowed with powers for six years. In accordance with Article 72 of the Constitution of Kazakhstan, the Constitutional Council supervises the presidential and parliamentary elections and carries out the national referendum.

The first plenary session of the Majilis in a new building of the Kazakh Parliament in Astana was held in 2004.

In 2012, the first commercial-size solar power plant of Kazakhstan was put into operation in the Korday district, Zhambyl region. The solar power plant was built at the sole expense of private companies. The remarkable thing is that it is connected to the national grid system.

In 2015, the Military History Museum of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan obtained a valuable exhibit - a replica of the Banner of Victory, which is the main relic of the World War II. The banner is of the paramount historic importance for our country, the history of the Kazakh Army that encompasses the heroic past of our fathers and grandfathers who bravely fought in the battlefields of that war.

The same day the construction of two core power substations "Airport-Novaya" and "Olimp" was completed in Astana. They provided the Astana Expo 2017 facilities with power backup.

In 2016, the Person of the Year 2016 Award for the Heroic Act of the Year was bestowed on Galymzhan Kuzembayev, an eighth-grader who saved three children from the fire. Governor of Mangistau region Alik Aidarbayev presented a golden statuette "Altyn Adam" (Golden Man) to the young hero.
