«At the extended meeting of the Political Council Nursultan Nazarbayev made a decision to transfer the powers of the Chairman of Nur Otan Party stressing that the Party should be headed by the President of the country. The transfer procedure is to be carried out according to the Party’s Charter,» reads the Twitter post.
