Tokayev will be sworn in as president of Kazakhstan again

Astana, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) Kasim-Yomart Tokayev, reelected president of Kazakhstan in the early elections of last Sunday, will take office on Saturday, the head of the Central Electoral Commission, Nurlan Abdirov, announced on Tuesday.

Tokayev won the reelection with 81.31 percent of votes, according to the final tally, in an election where the turnout was 69.44 percent of the country’s nearly 12 million registered voters.

In the previous general election in June 2019, Tokayev won with 70.96 percent of the ballots.

Of all five rivals who contested Tokayev’s presidency last Sunday, the most voted was Zhiguli Dairabayev, of the Auyl party.

On September 1, Kazakhstan’s president proposed holding early elections, although his first five-year term would not expire until 2024 and expressed the idea of extending the presidential term to seven years without the right to reelection.

On the next day, Kazakh lawmakers proposed to introduce the corresponding amendments to the country’s Constitution and to elect a president for a seven-year term as early as this autumn.
