This year, for the first time in many years, Kazakhstan celebrates a national holiday – Republic Day, restored this summer at the initiative of the President of the country.
October 25 is one of the most important dates in the history of Kazakhstan for our country. It was on this day in 1990 that the Declaration on State Sovereignty of the Kazakh SSR was adopted. In fact, it was the country’s first step towards independence. The declaration proclaimed the sovereignty of the Kazakh SSR and declared the political and legal foundations of Kazakhstan as an independent state. For the first time, such principles of statehood as the integrity, indivisibility and inviolability of the territory, the development of the culture of peoples and their languages, and the strengthening of national identity were enshrined in it. The document also proclaimed the principle of independent solution of political, economic and social problems. KazSSR received the right to create its own internal troops, state security and internal affairs agencies. And the President was recognized as the head of the country, the head of the administrative and executive supreme power.
Republic Day was first declared a national holiday in October 1995. Six years later, it lost the status of a national holiday and was transferred to the category of state holidays. In 2009, a law was signed, according to which the celebration of the Republic Day was canceled in the country, and October 25 became a working day. On June 16, 2022, the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, at the first meeting of the National Kurultai proposed to return the status of a national holiday to Republic Day.
