Kazakhstan votes to amend constitution: Referendum results

Voters in Kazakhstan have backed constitutional amendments proposed by President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in the June 5 referendum, the Central Election Commission said on Monday.
It said that 77.18 percent of votes were in favour of the amendments which decentralise decision-making and strip former leader Nursultan Nazarbayev of his “leader of the nation” status. The total turnout stood at 68.06 percent.
