June 22, 2019 marked the thirtieth anniversary of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s election as the First Secretary of the Kazakh SSR’s Communist Party’s Central Committee (he was serving as the Head of the regional Ministers Council at the time). It was then when Nazarbayev, de-facto, took charge of Kazakhstan. De-jure, he took over the leadership of the republic (at the time, still a member of the USSR) on April 24, 1990 when, on a single bidder basis, he was elected the President of the Kazakh SSR at the Supreme Soviet meeting.
