Kassym-Jomart Tokayev: Kazakhstani politician and diplomat
Kassym-Jomart Kemelyevich Tokayev is a Kazakh politician and diplomat. He took office as the President of Kazakhstan on 20 March 2019, succeeding Nursultan Nazarbayev who resigned on 19 March 2019 after 29 years in office. Tokayev was elected president of Kazakhstan in an early election on 9 June 2019 with 71% of the popular vote. According to OSCE, significant irregularities were observed on election day, including cases of ballot box stuffing, and a disregard of counting procedures meant that an honest count could not be guaranteed. There were widespread detentions of peaceful protesters on election day in major cities, says OSCE in the Statement of Preliminary Findings and Conclusions.
