N. Nazarbayev submitted Law on amendments to Constitution to Constitutional Court
ASTANA. January 28. KAZINFORM /Serik Sabekov/ In case of such unanimous support of the people of Kazakhstan I promise to work as long as it is necessary if my health and strength allow me to do it. President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev said it at the joint session of the Houses of the Parliament delivering his annual Address to the Nation.
N. Nazarbayev expressed gratitude to all those who initiated holding of the national referendum to extend the powers of the President to 2020. 'I am pleased with this initiative. The most important that I realize the will of the people of Kazakhstan - not to leave the post, and continue my work', the Head of State said.
"I have issued a decree rejecting the proposal of the Parliament to hold a referendum, because I intended to run for presidency at the presidential elections in 2012. Exercising its constitutional powers, the Parliament adopted a law on amendments to the Constitution. I sent the law to the Constitutional Council, which is to decide whether or not it is in line with the Constitution and the legislation. A final decision will be made only after the ruling of the Constitutional Council," Nazarbayev reported.
