ASTANA, January 13. /TASS/. Members of the lower house of Kazakhstan’s parliament have addressed the president with the request to dissolve the Mazhilis, leader of the People’s Communists faction Vladislav Kosarev told a press briefing on Wednesday citing a joint statement of representatives of three parties.
"We propose early termination of powers of deputies of the fifth convocation," Kosarev said adding that the Mazhilis of the fifth convocation "has fulfilled its historic mission of establishing the legislative basis for the Plan of Nations." "The parliament adopted around 80 laws, and roadmaps were developed for each of five constitutional reforms proposed by the president. Now, when the new historic period is starting, modernization of the country is underway along with political implementation in all spheres of presidential reforms, and it is principally important that the parties receive a new mandate from voters," he said.
Kosarev stressed that "wide social consolidation" is necessary for effectively implementing anti-crisis measures. "In order to synchronize our actions in implementing reforms at all levels, it is necessary to combine parliamentary election with election to local maslikhats," he continued. This "will allow in the conditions of crisis not to drag the election cycle and considerably lower budget spending for organizing and holding election," he concluded.
