Today Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev took part in the joint session of the Chambers of the Parliament, where it was decided to close the session of the Parliament of the VI convocation.

Opening the session of the Parliament chambers, Chairman of the Majilis Nurlan Nigmatullin noted that all the work of the deputy corps was aimed at implementing the strategic priorities identified by President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the opening of the third session in September last year and in the Address to the people of Kazakhstan.

“These events have become a clear evidence of the great international authority of the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev and the effectiveness of his foreign and domestic policies. In the outgoing session, another truly historic event took place in the walls of the Parliament. It was here that the President of the country promulgated his Five Social Initiatives - a set of unique and unprecedented measures aimed at improving the well-being of Kazakhstanis. And the Deputies took an active part in forming the legislative basis for the implementation of these social initiatives of the President,” – N. Nigmatullin said.

According to the Speaker of the lower house, the execution of Yelbasy’s instructions competently through qualitative laws was the main, responsible task of the Parliament. Four joint sessions of Chambers, 38 plenary sessions of the Majilis and 25 plenary sessions of the Senate were held, where over 400 issues were considered.

During the third session, 129 bills were considered in both houses of the Parliament, of which 84 have been adopted so far, 65 have been signed by the Head of State and have entered into force. Among them:

Deputy Speaker of the Majilis of the Parliament Vladimir Bozhko told that the work of the Parliament with the Government is constructive.

“We could not have passed and worked out such a volume of fundamental laws without the fruitful work of the Government. Look at the amount of laws passed; we continue to implement the legislative formalization of the “100 steps”, almost worked out changes in the Law on the state program “7-20-25”, one of the important laws is that we have taken a stronger control over banking activities. These are all laws that go contribute to the development of the initiatives of the President,” – V. Bozhko said.

In turn, a member of the Committee on Economic Reform and Regional Development of the Majilis of the Parliament Pavel Kazantsev noted that the session that ended was one of the most intense and informative.

“Practically the vast majority of system-forming codes were seriously revised. These are tax, customs, business codes, subsoil code - all this to liberalize economic relations, to facilitate access of the population to services, legalize the systems of fines. We also promptly considered the social block within the framework of the President's Five Social Initiatives to legislatively secure these initiatives, which are awaited by the people of Kazakhstan,” – P. Kazantsev said.

Recall, on June 15 in Astana, a joint session of the Chambers of Parliament took place, during which the deputies reviewed and approved the report of the Government and the conclusion of the Accounts Committee on the execution of the National budget for 2017.
