The Congress’s participants made the decision to unite the Civilian Party with the Otan Republican Party.
- Today’s Congress is a very important event not only for the Civilian Party, but also for the entire party system of the country. The decision just made has a very significant long-term political impact. By responding to the idea of consolidation of all constructive political forces in Kazakhstan, which was suggested by me at the IX Congress of the Otan party, the Civilian Party has demonstrated its responsible position and its understanding of those strategic goals our country is willing to achieve. I congratulate all of you on this decision. The merger of the leading Kazakhstani parties started in this year initiates a new stage in the development of the Kazakhstani party system, - Nursultan Nazarbaev said while delivering a speech at the Congress.
The President remarked that the party merger corresponds to the new strategic goals Kazakhstan wishes to achieve.
- Our country has entered the new stage in its development, much more complicated than the previous ones. Our goal is the accelerated development of the country. Its first stage will be the implementation of the Strategy for Kazakhstan’s accession to the group of the 50 most competitive countries in the world. Therefore we need to consolidate all creative forces of the society in order to perform the modernization breakthrough, - the Head of State stressed.
The President of the country has commissioned the united party with a number of concrete tasks.
