National Council Includes Major Social And Political Groups
Development of proposals and recommendations for public policies in important areas is the main objective of the Public Trust National Council under the supervision of the President of Kazakhstan.
On Wednesday, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev signed a decree on the status and composition of the council.
According to the decree, the National Council is a consultative and advisory body, including the representatives of all major socio-political groups in the country.
“This will be a high-status body in our political system. It will be headed by the president himself. This is the first real step towards a political modernization. Public trust and a government that reacts to public concerns are in focus, the head of state recently said at an expanded government meeting. The highest executive power wants to see the signals and be in a direct dialogue with representatives of the civil society on different levels,” said CEO of Applied Research Center, Rakhim Oshakbaev.
