Senate President Maulen Ashimbayev met with TurkPa observers who arrived in Kazakhstan to monitor the early presidential election.

At the start of the meeting Maulen Ashimbayev offered his condolences to the Turkish parliamentarians over the deaths of people as a result of the terrorist attack in Istanbul on November 13, and wished quick recovery to the injured.

The Senate Speaker also thanked the parliamentarians for their participation in the monitoring of the early presidential elections and said that Kazakhstan attaches great importance to the observation process.

The Chairman of the Senate stressed that all necessary measures to hold elections in full compliance with the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan and international standards in this area.

During the meeting, Maulen Ashimbayev drew attention to the importance of the upcoming elections and informed observers about the ongoing reforms in the country to further develop the political system, eliminate the risk of monopolizing power and strengthen the basic principles of democracy.

As the Speaker of the House noted, a number of important constitutional laws were adopted in Kazakhstan aimed at strengthening the human rights protection system, ensuring the balance of powers and responsibilities between the branches of power as well as between the center and the regions.

"On the instructions of the Head of State, the legislative framework for a mixed model of formation of the Mazhilis and Maslikhats, the phased introduction of elections of akims of cities of district and regional importance was created. These and other changes meet the demands and interests of our citizens. At the same time, they facilitate the formation of a new political model, and strengthen people's trust in the state and political institutions," said the Senate Speaker.

In his turn, the head of the delegation Erol Kaya stressed that the activities of the Observer Mission from TurkPA are aimed at an objective assessment of the election campaign. He also wished the people of Kazakhstan that the early Presidential elections were held within the law of the country and in accordance with recognized international standards.

It should be noted that 10 international organizations and 641 observers from 35 foreign countries have been accredited in the country. In order to assist observer missions, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs established a special headquarters.
