ASTANA, April 29. /TASS/. Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev has accepted resignation of the country’s government on Wednesday.

"The head of state signed a decree ‘About the government of the Republic of Kazakhstan’ in connection with the Kazakhstani government’s resignation," the president’s press service said. The government will perform its duties until new parliament is elected.

Nazarbayev also signed decrees on resignation of akims (heads) of Almaty, Astana and the country’s regions.

Members of the Kazakh government have submitted resignation to the newly elected president Nursultan Nazarbayev, the press service of the country's prime minister, Karim Masimov, said earlier.

Nazarbayev, who was inaugurated for a fifth term earlier on Wednesday, is expected to nominate a new prime minister later in the day. The premier's candidacy has to be approved by the parliament.
