Expert names reasons for Kazakhstan holding early presidential election

Trend - Feb 16, 2015

Kazakhstan will for sure hold early presidential election in 2015 as it was proposed earlier, researcher at CIDOB Barcelona Centre for International Affairs Nicolás de Pedro believes. “As the proposal is coming from the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan and supported by the [ruling party] Nur Otan we can assume that early elections will take place for sure in 2015. The initiative undoubtedly has the backing of the Akorda [presidential palace] which is probably its real promoter,” de Pedro told Trend.
