The event was attended by Kazakhstan State Secretary Yerlan Karin, Minister of Education and Science Askhat Aimagambetov, Chairman of the Board - Rector of Al-Farabi Kazakh National University Zhanseit Tuimebayev, representatives of state bodies, deputies, scientists, experts  and teachers of universities.
Yerlan Karin, State Secretary of the Republic of Kazakhstan, delivered a welcoming speech to the participants of the event. In his speech, he expressed his gratitude to political scientists for their participation in the congress and wished them fruitful work.
"Today's event brought together political scientists from different corners of our country. The programme of the congress of political scientists is substantial. The talk about New Kazakhstan is impossible without consideration of key tendencies in the development of world political and economic processes. The referendum to be held on June 5 will be the beginning of positive changes. Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has already defined what will be the New Kazakhstan. First of all, fair. The new Kazakhstan means a reset of all sectors. The people will participate in this process and make their choice," said Yerlan Karin.
Welcoming the guests of honour into the university, Zhanseit Tuimebayev, rector of Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, stressed that recommendations formed by the professional community of political scientists should be not only objective but also effective.
"Political scientists, reacting quickly to internal and external political processes, formulate proposals for making effective decisions. Now, political scientists are facing new challenges in terms of theoretical and applied political science. The format of today's meeting allows us to search for and form new meanings and ideas on the issues of the country's development," the rector of the university noted.
In addition, Zhanseit Tuimebayev stressed the importance of the referendum in building New Kazakhstan.
"On June 5 we are waiting for an important historical event - the republican referendum on amendments to the Constitution. In the conditions of the new reality, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has set new strategic goals. These tasks will be aimed at transforming the political system and developing civil society. The programme for modernising the country's political system proposed by the President is the result of public demand for radical changes.
There is no doubt that all the amendments to the Basic Law of our country will create a legal basis for the successful implementation of the initiated reforms. We have to make our choice, show our civic position," the Head of the University said.
