On the eve of the annual Address to the people of Kazakhstan the President briefed the party’s activists on the major theses of the Address.
- I have invited you, leaders of the “Nur Otan” party and some members of its Political Council, deputies of the Parliament representing our party, to speak about tomorrow’s annual Address to the people of Kazakhstan that I am going to deliver during the joint sitting of the Parliament’s chambers. Because “Nur Otan’ is the party of parliamentary majority you must be first while discussing all strategic issues of our country’s development. Consultancy practice is becoming a norm here. This is necessary in order to keep work consistency while implementing outlined plans. Particularly, we are talking about the party’s program “Kazakhstani way 2009”, which describes the formation of Kazakhstani life standards by 2009. It is close to every Kazakhstani, and our work will be implemented in this context. I expect that the “Nur Otan” party, as usual, will be the main political buttress to the country’s strategic development course and main political resource in building a new Kazakhstan in the new world, - Nursultan Nazarbaev said while opening the meeting.
Acting Chairman of the party Bakytzhan Zhumagulov, Vice Chairman of the party and Mazhilis deputy Dariga Nazarbaeva, Vice Chairman of the party and Board Director Alexander Pavlov of the “People’s Bank of Kazakhstan” open JSC, Senate deputy and leader of the party’s deputy group Anatoly Bashmakov, Mazhilis deputy and leader of the party’s parliamentary faction Amzebek Zholshibekov, Vice Senate Chairman Mukhambet Kopeev and other members of the “Nur Otan” Political Council took part in the meeting.
After the meeting its participants took part in a press briefing.
- We assured the Head of State that members of the Political Council and the party itself would support the main theses of the Address to the people of Kazakhstan, - acting Chairman of the party Bakytzhan Zhumagulov said.
- Today we heard from the President the information on the address’s content. That will be the most effective address ever, because it contains a very strong social block. Virtually all problems of social nature that we receive from our electorate will be resolved. As concerns the perspective of the Address, it will outline all the tasks for the nearest ten years and summarize the outcomes of what have been done over the past years. This address will have a very positive impact on the society, - Mazhilis deputy Vera Sukhorukova noted.
- Today the President familiarized us with the social aspect of the Address to the people of Kazakhstan. Forthcoming political reforms reflect all suggestions made by the State Commission, which recently held its conclusive sitting, on the development and concretization of democratic reforms, - leader of the party’s parliamentary faction Amzebek Zholshybekov said.
- It has become a norm of the President’s work style, when on the eve of making important political decisions activists of the “Nur Otan” Party are invited for an exchange of views. Each Address of the President is prominent not only with the novelty of its ideas and conceptions, but also significant social packets for further improvement of the population’s life, - this is the opinion of senator Anatoly Bashmakov.
