Nursultan Nazarbayev: Kazakh politician, 1st and former President of Kazakhstan
Nursultan Äbishuly Nazarbayev is a Kazakh politician currently serving as the Chairman of the Security Council of Kazakhstan and previously served as the first President of Kazakhstan, in office from 24 April 1990 to his formal resignation on 19 March 2019. He is one of the longest-served non-royal leaders in the world, having ruled Kazakhstan for nearly three decades. He was named First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Kazakh SSR in 1989 and was elected as the nation's first president following its independence from the Soviet Union. He holds the title "Leader of the Nation". In April 2015, Nazarbayev was re-elected with almost 98% of the vote, as he ran virtually unopposed.
