Nazarbayev resigned as president of Kazakhstan

President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in his address to the nation on March 19, 2019 announced that he was resigning.

For almost 29 years, from April 24, 1990, Nursultan Nazarbayev was at the head of Kazakhstan in the status of the country's president. Nazarbayev was among the first persons of the republic in Soviet times.

In 1979, forty years ago, he was included in the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Kazakh SSR as Secretary of the Central Committee, in 1984 he took the post of chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Kazakh SSR, and in February - April 1990 he was chairman of the Supreme Council of the republic.

We have done everything together, Kazakhstanis. You supported me in all elections. It is a blessing to be the president of such a country. I served you faithfully. Thanks to you, I became president

- Nazarbayev said in his address to the people of the republic.

The reasons for the resignation of Nursultan Nazarbayev are still unknown. Of course, the age of the Kazakh leader played a role, first of all. Nursultan Abishevich in July of this year should be 79 years old. Not the limit, but very solid.

Under the leadership of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan managed to maintain political stability in the most difficult post-Soviet years. The Republic remained the most economically prosperous of all the post-Soviet states of Central Asia. There is also an undoubted merit of Nursultan Nazarbayev.

    - The "Eternal Ruler" leaves in his hands the power structures (in fact, the entire executive branch) ..; "financial leverage and savings" and all the numerous "pro-Nazarbayev lobby" ... - but "promotes" instead of itself (appoints) "Kazakh Medvedev" ... - And the whole European, "Latin enlightened Kazakhstan" is loudly applauding ... - boomerang launched ... -But the boomerang has the ability to return ... -And presidents ...- also have the same property ... -Hahah ...
    -And there are still "powerful formidable creditors" (no ...- not compliant and soft-hearted Russia) ...- these are the Americans and the Chinese .. who have long since "divided" Kazakhstan ... -and everyone is thirsty " their Kazakhstan "... -And for them to start any mess in Kazakhstan ... is a piece of cake ...
    - By the way, the Russian special services have already saved Nazarbayev more than once ... when the throne was really shaking under him ... - But today is a different time ...
    -And also .., by the way ...- I just looked into the water .. when in the "Venezuelan theme": "Why the Kremlin will hold on to Maduro until the end" ....- Kazakhstan mentioned ... - Hahah ...
    -And here ... how quickly "it all appeared" ...
    -Now Russia is more and more about Kazakhstan "must think" and "undertake and decide" .., and not about Venezuela ... -Venezuela has already "moved into the background" ...

    It’s only a pity that he squeezed South Siberia out of our ears. And Stalin is to blame for everything. It was he who created the Kazakh SSR. And he joined southern Siberia. The people in the 90s began to demand a return to Russia, then the buye immediately moved the capital to the north ...
