Nazarbayev showed up and addressed the nation

2.5 weeks after the start of the bloody events in Kazakhstan, Nazarbayev did show up and wrote down an appeal to the nation.

According to Nazarbayev, “he is a pensioner and is on a well-deserved rest” (although until January 5 he held a key post in Kazakhstan, which, according to his powers, was cooler than the president’s), Nazarbayev, according to him, did not leave Kazakhstan, Tokayev will soon head the Nur Otan party, no there is no elite conflict in Kazakhstan, everyone needs to support the course of President Tokayev.

“Dear Kazakhstanis!
Dear compatriots!

The January events shocked the whole of Kazakhstan. The purpose of these organized riots and attacks on Kazakhstan was to destroy the integrity of the country and the foundations of the state. These events once again show that independence must be cherished like the apple of an eye, like a fragile vessel requiring especially careful handling.
The tragedy that happened was a lesson for all of us. It is important to find out who organized all these pogroms and murders. The investigation will answer this question.
I express my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims, and wish the injured a speedy recovery.

In response to numerous appeals addressed to me, and in connection with publications in the media, I inform you that in 2019 I transferred the powers of the President to Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and since then I have been a pensioner, and now I am on a well-deserved rest in the capital of Kazakhstan and didn’t go anywhere.

President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has full power. He is the chairman of the Security Council. Soon, the President will be elected chairman of the Nur Otan party. Therefore, there is no conflict or confrontation in the elite. Rumors on this subject are absolutely groundless.
Everyone knows that for 30 years I have worked tirelessly for the sake of our Motherland.

We have strengthened its borders.
We carried out progressive reforms.
Together we built an independent Kazakhstan, achieved great results in social and economic development, became leaders in many respects not only in Central Asia, but also in the CIS.

Kazakhstan has become a recognizable and authoritative state in the world community. This is the result of solidarity and unity of all Kazakhstanis.
Stability and tranquility in the country have always been my goal. We all need to cherish these enduring values. We will definitely get through the crisis and become even stronger. The President put forward a new reform program aimed at improving the well-being of the people. This program needs to be supported.
I wish you, dear compatriots, health and prosperity!
Thank you for supporting my course of reforms and modernization, which I pursued while in office as head of state.”
