In January of this year, mass protests took place in Kazakhstan, which escalated into riots, clashes, battles and seizures of government buildings. Among the demands of the protesters was the departure of Nazarabayev from politics. After the protests were suppressed, the three sons-in-law of the Elbasy, his nephew and other relatives lost their posts, and the current Kazakh president, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, promised to carry out large-scale reforms in the country.
In late January, the Senate of Kazakhstan proposed to adjust the law on the first president, so as not to coordinate with him the key directions of foreign and domestic policy. Nazarabayev resigned as head of the ruling Nur Otan party, which was later renamed Amanat. According to the forthcoming amendments to the Constitution of Kazakhstan, the first president will lose most of his personal privileges.
