07.12.2023 146

A meeting of the Chamber was held under the chairmanship of the Speaker of the Senate Maulen Ashimbaev. The senators reviewed a number of laws and voiced their parliamentary requests.

Law «On the ratification of the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a communications procedure» aimed at increasing the level of protection of children's rights. The document establishes a mechanism for considering individual complaints from children or their parents in cases of violation of the rights enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

«Protecting the rights of the younger generation and ensuring their safety are the main policy priorities of our state. Kazakhstan fully supports UN initiatives in this area. Ratification of the Protocol allows complaints about violations of children's rights to be submitted to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. We believe that this law creates an additional legal basis for improving the mechanisms for protecting the interests of children», - said Maulen Ashimbaev, commenting on the approved law.

The deputies also reviewed and approved the Law «On the ratification of the Protocol on amendments to the Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Government of the Russian Federation on trade and economic cooperation in the field of supplies of oil and petroleum products to the Republic of Kazakhstan dated December 9, 2010». The protocol is aimed at regulating certain issues that arise during the supply of oil and petroleum products to the Russian Federation. It is expected that the document will contribute to the further development of trade and economic cooperation between the two countries in this area. 

In addition, the senators voiced their parliamentary requests.

Akmaral Alnazarova raised the problem of school meals. According to her, school canteen menus do not comply with modern scientific recommendations.

Amangeldy Nugmanov expressed concern about the pollution of the Ilek River in the Aktobe region, provoked by the spread of waste from a chemical plant in the Alga region. The senator called on the Government to take special control of the waste disposal process.

Bibigul Zheksenbai noted the need to expand the list of domestic TV channels broadcasting in border regions to strengthen information security.

Alisher Satvaldiev drew the attention of colleagues to the problems of employment of graduates of the «Serpin» program and poorly organized processes for their development on the part of akimats and employers.
