Kazakhstan's Nazarbayev steps down as President after 30 years in power | Dw News4.5
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.

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

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.

Don't come to live to Kazakhstan while there are no changes

Our president rules all the structures in his own interests. He rewrites our Constitution in his interests, which is funny for another countries but sad for our.
He is simple, When it comes to voting for the new president, he just kills his opponents. Then lie to us kinda his opponents were bad people.

People of Kazakhstan are exhausted from his tough leading. Hi is not leading he has been stealing all the government's money into his pocket. And majority of the people is poor people. Who gotta survive from month to month.

Nazarbayev indeed too a very difficult decision as he called it for the betterment of his country, despite it being dam rich with Oil wells, so it shd be a lesson to learn esp leaders in African countries who are over staying, and don't embrace peaceful transition of power.
