“According to the amendments being introduced to the Constitution, there will be no list of people with limited voting rights”, deputy Akshagul Tulegenova said. – In accordance with the law and by a court decision, the right to participate in elections may be deprived of citizens recognized as incompetent, as well as persons held in places of deprivation of liberty by a court verdict for committing a grave and especially grave crime. That is, these persons cannot participate in elections if their voting right is limited by a court decision, at other times they have the right to participate in elections.
The updated Basic Law takes into account the interests of all sectors of society. The number of norms on human rights and freedoms, duties to the people has been increased several times. Because when developing the draft Constitutional law, the main criterion was the principle “Human interests are above all”.
