  • ℹ️ Description
After 30 years in power Kazakhstan's president Nursultan Nazarbayev announced that he's stepping down. He has led the oil-rich nation since 1989, when it was still part of the Soviet Union. He said he would continue to chair the Security Council and remain leader of the main party in parliament. But the move means that his parliamentary speaker automatically assumes the presidency, at least for now.

The head of our local resident's association also resigned but tried to hang on to power for two years. It's a result of a combination of arrogance and senility.

No hope for change. New president is just his puppet. They even want to rename new president to "Nursultan Nazarbayev". Speachless.
