Kazakhstan holds referendum to move past Nazarbayev era

Both the former and current presidents of Kazakhstan are allies of neighbouring Russia. Nursultan Nazarbayev is shown here with Russian President Vladimir Putin in December 2021

Kazakhstan is holding a referendum Sunday to overhaul its constitution after deadly unrest in January ended founding leader Nursultan Nazarbayev’s three-decade grip on Central Asia’s richest country.
