ASTANA, September 24 (Itar-Tass) — President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev has dismissed Prime Minister Karim Massimov. “President Nazarbayev has relieved Massimov of the duties of prime minister in connection with a resignation notice he submitted,” the press service of the Kazakh head of state reported.
In the view of Kazakh presidential adviser Yermukhamet Yertysbayev, Massimov will become head of the presidential administration. He said this several few days ago. “Over five and a half years on the post of prime minister Massimov has approved himself as one of the strongest executives in the country. He was also engaged in economic management, quite successfully, in my opinion. Now some important questions have arisen in terms of political management, with which the presidential administration deals,” the adviser said.
On September 21, President Nazarbayev dismissed the head of his administration, Aslan Musin, who occupied this post since October 2008.
