Nazarbayev casts vote in Kazakhstan’s presidential election
Kazakhstan's incumbent president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, voted at the presidential election on Apr. 26, RIA Novosti reported.
Nazarbayev arrived at the polling station #81 in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. The voters there greeted him with applause.
Three candidates are taking part in the election: Nazarbayev, who has been the country's president since 1989, Turgun Syzdykov, the secretary of the central committee of the Communist People's Party, and Abelgazi Kusainov, the chairman of the Trade Unions Federation.
The voting will take place from 07:00 to 20:00 (UTC/GMT +6 hours). In the country's four western regions - the West Kazakhstan, Atyrau, Aktobe and Mangystau regions - the polling stations will be closed an hour later due to the time difference.
