NUR-SULTAN (Reuters) – Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev nominated Askar Mamin as prime minister on Friday and the newly elected lower house pf parliament swiftly approved his appointment after ruling party leader Nursultan Nazarbayev asked his lawmakers to back Mamin.
Mamin had stepped down after the Jan. 10 parliamentary election as required by the constitution, after almost two years in office. Nazarbayev’s Nur Otan party swept this month’s vote to retain control over the lower house.
