President of Kazakhstan


January 24, 2022

The President of the Republic of Kazakhstan (Kazakh Republic of Kazakhstan, President of Kazakhstan, Russian President of Kazakhstan) is the head of state of Kazakhstan and commander-in-chief of Kazakhstan. The President holds the highest office in the Republic (Kazakhstan). The powers of this position are described in a special section of the Constitution of Kazakhstan. The position was established on April 24, 1990, a year before the collapse of the Soviet Union. The current president is Kasym-Zhomart Kemeluly Tokayev, who took office on March 20, 2019 after the resignation of the first president, Nursultan Nazarbayev. None of the presidential elections in Kazakhstan were considered free or fair by Western standards, with problems including ballot manipulation, multiple voting, harassment of opposition candidates and press censorship.


The symbols of the President of Kazakhstan include the emblem on his chest and the presidential standard.

Presidential Standard

The standard of the President of Kazakhstan is similar to the national flag in that it has a rectangular shape with a ratio of 1: 2. In the middle of the standard is the emblem of Kazakhstan. It is lined with golden fringes on three sides. The current presidential standard came into force only in 2012. The former standard, used in 1995-2012, was a light blue rectangle with a golden circle, in which was the figure of a young Kazakh leader Sakas riding a snow leopard. .
