According to President Tokayev

While attending a joint session of the parliament President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev suggested simplifying the process of political party registration.

«We have to decrease the registration qualification for parties fourfold from 20,000 to 5,000. The threshold of a minimal quantity of party supporters in regions must be decreased from 600 t0 200 people. And only 700 individuals instead of 1,000 will be needed to establish a political party,» said the president.

Tokayev also noted that the government is going to increase the time frame for founding congresses and creating representative offices in regions. The president believes that these measures will promote the creation of new political parties that would be able to represent different groups of people.

Also, he insists that any donations to political parties must be transparent in order to avoid intervention from foreign countries.
