People expect concrete proposals. We hope that the National Public Trust Board will be a unique structure to implement all the initiatives”, the President said.

“We need to live up to the people’s trust. Each citizen’s interest is of importance to us. The civil society has become more active but sometimes it lacks in ripeness, however, it will be acquired eventually”, Tokayev said.

In his speech, Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev outlined that the State must listen to the citizens and most importantly hear them.

“Our democracy becomes stronger and the social awareness is based on the values of patriotism. Each of the members of the National Board has own opinion, stance, which is a very natural state of a developed civil society”, the President said.

“We should proceed from the concept announced in my inauguration speech, which goes like different opinions – one nation. Indeed, there is no development without alternatives, initiatives and activity. These are three points paving the way forward”, the President said.

The Kazakh Head of State called his power pattern as the strong plenipotentiary President, the influential, capable Parliament and the Government answerable to the people.

“I am sure that Kazakhstan should be a State with a presidential form of government. And, the Parliament should take the rightful place in the political system. It is not only about the improvement of electoral legislation but also about the fact that the Parliament could play a more significant role in adopting important government decisions”, the Kazakh Head of State said.

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev outlined that the State must listen to its citizens and hear them.

“It is high time to give impetus to political competition, expand the real involvement of citizens in a political life of the country, and promote the development of a multi-party system. We should restart the country’s social policy. The national economy should work for real increase of well-being of all our citizens,” the Kazakh President said.
