  1. Communist party back in parliament

    KAZAKHSTAN: The country’s communist party will re-enter parliament when it opens its first session of the year on Friday after the party won 7 per cent of the vote in last Sunday’s parliamentary elections.

    Communist People’s Party of Kazakhstan (CPPK) leader Vladislav Kossarev said: “The party received a passing grade — 7 per cent of the number of participating voters. It satisfies us, after a seven-year hiatus, that the party re-enters the parliament.”

    The ruling Nur Otan party of President Nursultan Nazarbayev won the election with 81 per cent of votes.

    The Ak Zhol party received 7.4 per cent of votes and the CPPK came third.

  9. Underground protest by Kazakhstan miners

    Coal miners at eight mines in Kazakhstan held an underground sit-in to demand a pay increase, improved working conditions and earlier retirement. A sit-in began at four of the mines on Monday and was joined by the other four on Tuesday as the dispute spread.

    The mines are owned by the ArcelorMittal steel company and produce coal for its factory there.
