President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev took part in the plenary session of the Mazhilis of the Parliament

In his speech to the deputies, the Head of State stressed that the transformation of Kazakhstan into an advanced country is not just a slogan, but a specific goal.

– We must follow the path of progressive development. Therefore, along with carrying out radical political reforms, we must take decisive steps in order to carry out profound transformations in the socio-economic life of the country. The main thing is that all our measures contribute to the implementation of the principles of "Fair Kazakhstan". First of all, it is necessary to give a new impetus to socio-economic policy. Development priorities, principles of support and the tasks facing the sectors of the economy should be reviewed. Ultimately, the state's policy should decisively move from endless support measures to promoting truly high-quality development. The time has come to do this not in words, but in deeds," Kassym-Jomart Tokayev said.

The President pointed out that the Tax and Budget Codes, laws on public procurement, and on public-private partnership are based on completely new principles, and stressed that they should become a reliable basis for the implementation of the new economic policy. According to Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, the task is to eliminate barriers in tariff policy, modernize the agricultural sector, and develop effective approaches to management and financing of the social sphere.

– First of all, the Government should play an important role here. You should start working at a new pace. The Government should combine such qualities as professionalism, responsibility, efficiency, and initiative in its activities. The Government needs to make bold, firm decisions aimed at stimulating and diversifying the economy for the benefit of the people. This task is of exceptional importance and is of a strategic nature," the Head of State said.

The Head of State said that after discussing the candidacy of the Prime Minister, nominated by the political party "Amanat", a common opinion was reached with the heads of the factions of the parties in the Majilis. In accordance with article 44 of the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the President proposed the candidacy of Olzhas Bektenov for the post of Prime Minister.

– Olzhas Bektenov is an experienced civil servant. He has extensive knowledge in economics and other fields, has high organizational skills, is disciplined, honest, and hardworking. Therefore, I think we will have enough opportunities to realize the goals facing the country's economy," Kassym–Jomart Tokayev said.

The meeting was attended by the heads of the factions of the parties "Amanat", OSDP, "Ak Zhol", NPK, "Respublica", "Auyl". Then, during the voting, 69 deputies supported the candidacy of the new head of Government, 7 deputies abstained.
