Read it in Russian

President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev finds it appropriate to reduce the presidential term from seven to five years. He made the statement today at a joint session of the Kazakh parliament while introducing amendments to the country’s constitution, a REGNUM correspondent reports.

“For instance, France took the same way. The reform will be put into practice since 2012. Actually, we could have avoided changing this norm, as it does not contradict to common democratic approaches. But at the same time, by this step, we would like to stress our firm democratic aspirations and make equal terms of office of key electable power actors,” Nazarbayev said.
