Kazakhstan’s ruling Amanat party received 53.9% of votes in a snap parliamentary vote, official data showed on Monday (20 March). This gave President Kassym Jomart Tokayev a mandate to reform the oil-rich country in line with his social justice goals.

Although no opposition parties were represented in Sunday’s elections, Western criticism was less severe than usual as Europe and America seek to strengthen relations with Russia’s neighbors that have been shaken since Moscow’s invasion.

OSCE observers stated that reforms implemented before the vote addressed some of OSCE’s previous recommendations and provided “increased choice for voters”, but further changes were necessary.

Ningún partido da oposición puido rexistrarse antes das eleccións a pesar dunha flexibilización formal dos requisitos de rexistro, como o número e a orixe das sinaturas requiridas.

Polo menos un grupo da oposición afirmou que o goberno denegou deliberadamente o rexistro.

Os funcionarios kazakhs dixeron que a OSCE observou cambios positivos e preocupantes. Isto foi un estímulo para eles para loitar por unha maior democracia.

“Such comments also important given the geopolitical backdrop of these elections, and the unprecedented tensions that the region and world have been experiencing since last year,” stated the official on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly.

The election of the lower chamber completes the shake-up in Central Asia’s political elite. It all began with Tokayev’s ex-patriot and predecessor Nursultan Nagayev being forced to resign in the early 2021 midst violent unrest.

Tokayev (69) comprometeuse desde entón a garantir unha distribución máis xusta da riqueza no seu país grande, pero pouco poboado, rico en minerais e hidrocarburos.

Russia, a major political player in the Central Asian region, and Kazakhstan’s largest trading partner, welcomed Tokayev’s election results as an endorsement of his economic and political reforms.

Maria Zakharova, Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman, said: “We reaffirm in principle our commitment to the further strengthening multifaceted Russian-Kazakh cooperation through the parliamentary system.”
