MOSCOW, 6 March. /TASS/. Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev has declared on Friday that he enjoys support of the population because of their wish to preserve internal stability. Speaking at a ceremonial meeting on the eve of the International Women's Day, Nazarbayev said that the Kazakh people should preserve internal stability as "the most valued posession".
"No man cann ensure it alone, we all should adhere to the idea (of stability)," Nazarbayev said. "Regrettably, there is always someone who might like to upset it all," Nazarbayev said. "If there is no stability in society there will be no chance to ensure economic development. Thanks to our stability we have been developing and belong to a group of rapidly developing countries," the president said.
On February 25 Nazarbayev signed a decree on early presidential election in Kazakhstan which will be held on April 26, as the decree said. Nine candidates have been running for the presidential post. One of them is Turgun Syzdakov — a member of the Communist People's Party of Kazakhstan. The incumbent president declared that he would announce his decision on the participation in the presidential campaign later.
