I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate President Nazarbyev on his nomination for People’s Hero of Kazakhstan. It is not before time that Prime Minister Karim Masimov, who nominated the president for the award, has recognised President Nazarbyev for the great leader he has been to the people of Kazakhstan over the last two decades.

In just twenty short years Kazakhstan, under the guiding hand of its wise president, has gone from being an underdeveloped land of farmers and miners to the very edge of mature country status with its ongoing bid to join the Group of Grown Up Nations (GoGUN). Its recent decision to dispense with the services of the Peace Corps only highlighted its rapid development in recent years.

By nominating the president for this illustrious award the prime minister has proved once again what a staunch ally he has been to the great leader. I look forward to witnessing in person the great strides this country will take on the road of democratisation next January as it prepares to allow another party to join Nur Otan in parliament.

With the festive season almost upon us, my colleagues and I at the Centre for Reporting and Analysing Politics would like to raise a glass to President Nazarbayev. Let’s hope that this time next year we will be toasting the award of the long overdue Nobel Peace Prize for the Leader of the Nation.
