The first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Konstantin Zatulin believes that the need to monitor further developments concerning the termination of powers of Deputy of the Senate of Kazakhstan Dariga Nazarbayeva, "it’s like a thunder from a clear sky".

Earlier the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev signed a decree on termination of powers of Deputy of the Senate (upper house) of the Parliament of Dariga Nazarbayeva, the press service of the President.

"the Whole story is like a bolt from the sky … of Course, it is necessary to observe further developments. Removing Dariga Nazarbayeva, whether offered something, whether she moved, or we are talking about the dismissal on all counts. If it is a dismissal on all counts, then inevitably the question arises, is this the result ended "honeymoon" or "honey of the year" in relations with Nazarbayev in General. This, of course, the main question because with all the talents of Dariga it is no more and no less, as the representative of the father in high public office", – told RIA Novosti Zatulin.

The Deputy noted that some time ago people started to pay attention that the father Nazarbayeva, the first President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, the current authority of the head of state in March of 2019, was less likely to appear on the screen, which has fueled speculation about the state of his health. But last week, Nazarbayev has held a meeting of the security Council, thereby dispel the rumors.

There are many options, theories about … what he intended to do next Nazarbayev and should assume that Tokayev needs after some time to give way to the same guest. Some people believe that it is not Dariga, and the nephew of Nazarbayev, who works in law enforcement, son of his elder brother, to whom the whole combination was created to allow him to approach the authorities and take up the reins. This, I repeat, those versions that have existed from the beginning after Nazarbayev handed over the powers.
