During the action the Draft of the program of introduction of amendments to the Constitution of RK is also listened and discussed. In analysis of the bill of the Republic of Kazakhstan submitted for discussion «About modification and additions in the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan», participated, led by curators, all members of curator groups.

From the proposed amendments the very first changes concern article 26, and specifically first two points where it is told about a private property. In the operating version of the Constitution there is a point according to which citizens of RK can have a private property, and in new option it is about everyone. There is no disaggregation on civil accessory.

«In article 44 two points — 8 and 9 which concerned first of all approval of state programs were excluded. Earlier this responsibility lay on the President of the republic, and in the new version the President restacks these tasks on the government. Thereby the important approval function of state programs will be transferred to the government.

Also in the draft of the program of introduction of amendments to the Constitution of RK it is offered to reduce a zone of responsibility of the President in case of appointment of ministers. In new amendments the President reserves the right to appoint only the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Defence.

Important changes, concern changes in article 70. Here specifically it is about the procedure of abdication of the government.

«According to the current version of the Constitution the government resigned the authority before the newly elected President, and now if amendments are adopted, the government will resign the authority before newly elected Mazhilis of Parliament. Thereby the role of Mazhilis amplifies, so the importance of parliamentary elections increases. Also, if earlier the prime minister reported on the main activities and decisions of the government only on the President, then now the prime minister will be obliged to report also on Mazhilis of Parliament».

Speaking about expert evaluations of political scientists concerning the project, it should be noted the following: «It is a major step forward. Cardinally powers of Parliament increase. The government will be appointed and retire not before the President, and before Parliament of the country. The parliamentary majority will create the government. The presidential decrees which are valid the law are cancelled. The role of Parliament on control over regional and executive authorities will be raised. Specifically, akimats will report to Parliament. This redistribution of powers actually essential. We really pass to a presidential and parliamentary form.The openness and transparency of the authorities increases».
