Presidential Elections in Kazakhstan
Tuesday, 5 May 2015, from 5 to 7 PM
You may view a recorded version of this CACI Forum below or on the SAIS events YouTube channel.
Kazakhstan conducted snap elections for the presidency on 26 April, 2015, with President Nazarbayev winning by 97% of vote. While critics question whether opposition candidates were given adequate time to mobilize their campaigns, defenders argue that this vote of confidence in the existing leadership of the country is reassuring to the country's international partners and investors at a moment of considerable stress throughout the region. Speakers will provide first-hand insights on the election and broader perspectives.
