Kazakhstan to Hold Early Presidential Election on June 9

Радио Азаттык

Kazakhstan's interim president, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, called a snap presidential election on Tuesday, citing the need to eliminate political uncertainty in the oil-rich Central Asian nation, Aljazeera reports. 

The election will take place on June 9, Tokayev said in a televised address to the nation.

Tokayev was named interim president after Nursultan Nazarbayev, who was in power for nearly three decades, abruptly announced his resignation last month.
