I express my gratitude for your contribution and activity in this responsible post. In this regard, it has been decided to appoint Maulen Ashimbayev as the Party’s first deputy. He was a deputy more than five years, and he headed the committee of the Parliament’s Majilis. I believe that he will contribute to raising up the Party’s status and role. I wish good work to everybody, Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
The Head of State emphasized the Nur Otan Party’s current tasks.
