The First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev emphasised in his speech at the jubilee Congress that the Nur Otan party is today the main political force of the country.
The chairman of the Nur Otan party noted the key achievements of the country’s development during the years of independence.
“In 30 years, Kazakhstan has achieved significant social and economic success, first of all due to the implementation of radical reforms focused on the market economy and modernisation of the country. Market reforms, industrialisation and the inflow of foreign investment have become the engines of productivity growth, and have ensured economic growth, significant increase in employment and reduction in social stratification in society,” the Leader of the Nation said.
Nazarbayev stressed that over the years of independence, Kazakhstan has created its own unique standard of national unity, turning ethnic diversity into an advantage. The key role in this process, as Elbasy noted, is assigned to the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan.
“Our financial ‘safety cushion’ has become the National Fund, created during a period of high economic growth. We have updated the social infrastructure by building 1,400 new hospitals and clinics, 1,800 schools, and 900 kindergartens. Within the framework of the adopted Strategy “Kazakhstan – 2050,” we are purposefully moving towards the standards of developed OECD countries,” the First President of Kazakhstan said.
Nazarbayev elaborated on the work of the party during the pandemic, as well as the process of ‘rebooting’ Nur Otan.
“Our party is the largest political force with experience in management and serious human resources in all regions. In terms of the composition quality, Nur Otan is a projection of the entire Kazakh society. Therefore, we firmly intend to continue working for the prosperity of the country and all the people of Kazakhstan”, the First President said.
Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that the party has always been and will continue to be guided by three basic principles: responsibility, team unity, and adherence to common ideals and goals.
“The Nur Otan Party Program announced today is ambitious, but at the same time the goals and targets are calculated and supported by financial and human resources. The program is a logical continuation of our reform course. Throughout the years of independence, I have always set clear goals and said that to achieve them it is necessary to work hard and tirelessly, overcoming many difficulties”, the Chairman of the Nur Otan party said.
Nazarbeyev stressed that the party has experience in carrying out reforms and the political will to implement all the plans.
“The new party program will be executed. It will ensure further modernisation of the country and improve the quality of life of all Kazakhs. To achieve a successful election campaign, the party needs to organise the coordinated work of the country and regional headquarters. Candidates, activists and proxies should visit all the regions and reach every voter,” the First President of Kazakhstan said.
Nazarbayev nominated Bauyrzhan Baibek, the first deputy chairman of the party, as the head of the country-wide campaign headquarters.
In conclusion, the Chairman of the party assured that he would continue his work for the benefit of preserving the independence and integrity of the country, the unity of the people around President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and the further development of the state.
As a result of the Congress, the electoral program of the party “The Path of Changes: a Decent Life for Everyone” was adopted. In addition, the party list for the elections to the Mazhilis of Parliament of 126 party members was approved.
