19th anniversary of Constitution- grate event in Kazakhstani history
“We, the people of Kazakhstan, united by a common historic fate, creating a state on the indigenous Kazakh land, considering ourselves a peace-loving and civil society, dedicated to the ideals of freedom, equality and concord, wishing to take a worthy place in the world community, realizing our high responsibility before the present and future generations, proceeding from our sovereign right, accept this Constitution,” the Basic Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan reads.
On 30 August the Republic of Kazakhstan celebrated the Constitution Day, one of the most important state holidays in the country.
On August 30, 1995 as a result of the nationwide referendum, Kazakhstan's Constitution – the supreme national law – was adopted establishing the rules and principles of building Kazakhstan as an independent, sovereign, economically liberal, fledgling democracy. All internationally recognized rights and freedoms are enshrined in the Constitution, thus making it a modern and progressive basis for a sustainable movement towards full-fledged democratic system and rule of law.
The Basic Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan was amended and modified twice: in 1998 and 2007. In 2007 the Constitution fixed a new form of a state system – presidential parliamentary.
