Multi-party System

“Different Opinions – One Nation.”

Kazakhstan’s multi-party system allows for the views of all citizens to be accommodated but creates a political environment based on compromise and debate – ensuring that the views of no one group can overshadow those of the masses.

Kazakhstan embraces political parties as a healthy component of our society as a means of involving citizens and policy innovation, holding leaders accountable for their actions, and effectively scrutinising policy – all qualities central to a strong democratic system.
